<font color='#000000'>Pete Mitchell - Piccadilly DJ
Betty Driver - Cor St
Bridget Forsythe - The Likely Lads

I think these are all 'used' to live in the area.

I heard that the keyboard player from popular pop combo Toploader moved to Compstall a while back, can anyone verify this?

Do occasionally see Craig Cash in Marple, my son wanted to ask for his autograph but I said no, we should leave him in peace to do his shopping!! Must say it does brighten the day when we see him though. :)

Don't be negative, Barbara, it makes conversation.
Goodness me, we need something pleasant to write about.

Bill Grundy - he of Sax Pastels fame - used to live off Hollins Lane and spent many a happy hour in the Midland when it was run by the two old boys in the late 70's.
