This post is all about Timperley.

Timperley is a small village bewteen Altrincham and Sale both in Cheshire, UK.

On Wikipedia Timperley has its own page.

My family have had a Cleary living in Timperley since the turn of the late 1800’s into the 1900. Even though I’ve moved away my parents and two of my children live within easy walk of Timperley Village.

I started a new group on FaceBook the past couple of weeks called ‘Memories of Timperley‘, the group is a closed group but all are welcome to join the group and I will organise your acceptance.

The group is there to capture photographs, memories and stories from all age groups and allows old disconnected friend to re-connect. I myself had lost touch with a couple of people I got on really well with when i was younger and now 25 years since we last spoke we have made contact. Hopefully in the not too distant future we can meet up and reminisce over a beer or two?

At today’s count we have 156 members in the group and its popularity is growing. We have also managed to get a varied selection of photographs too, more though are welcome as long as they are copyright free.

Aside from the group we’ve had a weekend of entertaining people as it was our youngest sons birthday on Friday, we had Grandma and Grandad for tea on Friday night, Nana and Grandad, as well as cousin William on Saturday for lunch, Josh had a couple of mates staying over on Saturday night, then today Sunday we’ve had Sam my daughter, Matt and Grandson Harry over for Sunday Tea. We’ve not had Lewis or Drew over here as they’ve both been working this weekend.

Urban Burger Bar

Not blogged since we got back from Chicago only because I’ve had nothing to blog about.

But guess what I have now….

My eldest son Drew has finally realised his dream and opened up his own restaurant in Altrincham called Urban Burger Bar

Drew had the soft opening for family and friends on Wednesday 15th October 2014 followed by the actual open to the public on Friday 17th

Urban Burger Bar

They’ve had a full on weekend with a few customers having to be turned away as they just couldn’t fit them in, let’s hope that these people get in on another date though but more importantly the popularity grows.

Good Friday

Had a busy day today, which is the start of the Easter weekend with Good Friday even though we’ve not been in work due to the Easter holidays.

So far we’ve been shopping early doors, then re-built the web site due to some minor technical issues and then followed all this up with a trip to my parents in Altrincham for our evening meal.

We’ve just got back home & will no be settling down to watch Benidorm on ITV.
