I lived at 58 Drumore Road when I was born in 1969. I lived there with my older brother and my Mum & Dad whose surname was Baxter. We lived there until 1977 when we moved to the new Riverside scheme in Govan. I remember Summerhill Primary very well and my older brother used to wave at me through the fence from the high school behind it! I think there was something special about growing up in the Drum then – I remember a feeling of a great community and playing in the back court , playing marbles on the stank! Did you know the McGloan’s who also lived in Drumore Road?

Still trying to find Cathy McGregor who would be in her early 70's now. She was a conductress on Alexander's blue buses working out of Milngavie depot in the 60s. I know she had one daughter late 60s. My sister Ann Thomson has been searching for years with no luck. Just though I'd give this one last shot. 😃

Don't know what generation Mick is but 50 years ago I was good friends with Francis Rosseli but more especially her husband John Cassidy I believe they lived next door to each other in Southdeen road.
Now divorced apparently John lives somewhere in Maryhill

Hi All

Name is Alastair Irvine

Ive just come across this forum and it has brought back a lot of memories .

My Family moved to the " Drum " in about 1965 where i attended Cleddans Primary School with my younger sister Kim . I only have fond memories of my time there . I was also a member of 221 Boys Brigade . We lived at No 12 Katewell . Following Cleddans i then moved on to Kingsridge . We then moved down south to England in about 1973 . My mum is called Sadie and worked at the whiskey bond . Her best friend at the time was a lady called Jessie Aitken . ( unfortunately i recall a while back that her son Roddy and his wife were the victims of a vicious murder !! . Anyway i can also recall my first love .... a lovely lassie called Morag Curran !
