    Default Aigburth 1950s

    I was wondering if anybody out there lived in Aigburth during the 1950s. I am particularly interested to hear from anybody who was a member of the CLB as my father was a member at that time. He also played in a local skiffle band at St.Annes called "Blue Ribbon" formerly the "Otters". Thoughts about them would also be very welcome.

    Regards

    Stewart

    I did - if you merge Aigburth and Grassendale...

    Help me out though, what was the CLB?

    Church lads brigade, intended to be like the scouts but never succeeded. It was a C of E organization, I was a member when I attended St. Stephens Gateacre

    Thanks - no wonder I hadn't heard of it.

    I went to St. Marys C of E on Aigburth road and they did (and still do, my nephews are in it) have a Boy Scout troop, so I guess no CLB there....

    I'm pretty sure they were separate organizations Norm.
