I'm not sure where the name came from (maybe one of the shopkeepers) but we used to refer to this parade of shops as 'Trickets'.

Trickets was the sweet shop on the parade the one that now looks to be bricked over. I was sent to the fish shop on the left of the parade in the early 60's & the queues were enormous. Can't remember the name of it though.

The shop on the far right used to be a biscuit shop (maybe cakes as well?). I remember the metal boxes of biscuits that were slanted to show the customer thir contents.

It is still called "Trickets". The fish shop as just recently closed down and is currently been made into a pizza shop.The middle shop is a tanning studio and the end shop is just a general shop.

I spent all of my pocket money in Tricket's. He was a nasty old devil but I had to have my pineapple chunks! My mother Betty worked for Joan and Raymond Groves in the fish shop in the early 60s until we emigrated to Australia in 1965

I first met my husband Ron when he was a butcher working for Jack Charnley back in 1963. He remembers all the other shopkeepers of that time, also Betty who worked for Groves fish shop. I think everybody remembers old man Tricket as he was such a miserable man, to say he had a sweet shop where children were half of his customers he didn't have much patience with them. We left Whinmoor in 1975.

Lived near these shops between 1974 and 1984,we always referred to them as the 'old' shops with the 'new' shops being at the Staging Post.I remember Trickets well,used to buy Aniseed balls at half pence each and getting 50,Im sure the staff got fed up counting them out! Also remember Liptons on the end and the 'chippie' at the other end.Spent many a weeks pocket money at these shops.

I remember old Trickett - as I recall he looked a bit like Albert Steptoe. His son was much more pleasant. I used to buy 1p packets of 'fruit climpets' there in the late 1960s. I also rememeber Paul Reaney's (ex Leeds United and England) mother used to live in the houses to the right just out of shot.

From about 1969 to 1974 I had an evening paper round which took in all of Stanks Lane South Eastwood Lane and Crescent, Some of Eastwood Drive and Ash Tree Approach. We used to meet Tom Hudson, the newsagent outside the chippy collect our bags and off we went. So if I delivered you a torn a YEP, it's only taken 40 years, my apologies.

With reference to Jasco's comment. Perhaps the name might have the same derivation as that as "The Stanks" in Beeston. This was an area of low lying stagnant wet-land which stank. Could it be that there was a similar pungent area in the vicinity of Manston village?

I remember it well. I lived on Stanks Road from 1958-1974 with Mum and Dad. Old Trickett was a lovely man. He had a lovely old Rover and if he saw Mum and I at the bus stop he'd give us a lift into town.

How right you are Alex and Andrea. My dad was Jack Charnley, the butcher, from the shops being new until 1972. I remember Ronnie Ashworth and all his lovely family.We got on well with all the shopkeepers but I remember Mr Trickett used to frighten me. He had a Rover car and when he drove it you couldn't see him over the dashboard!

I would love to see TRICKETS picture - thats where its bricked up in the pic shown. The Maypole mini supermarket was on the far right. The metal shutter you can see is where Joe Browns grocer was, then to the left of that was the butcher..then the (Hirsts) chippie on the far left! Happy days in the 70's/80s for me. I sued to love Trickets, especially at christmas time when colin would put tape on the windows with pretend snow and lights!! I used to live at 48 Stanks Gardens until 1987.

My mum Kitty worked for Mr Charnley around 1960 to 65. She worked on the bread and cooked meat side. I remember the family well. My friend Susan and I used to walk Mr Groves basset hound, Greaves, when we were kids. I remember being really scared of Mr Trickett and hated him serving me. Colin was much nicer. We kids used to play on the area beside the fish shop and around the asbestos garages round the back - no health and safety then!We even ate cakes from the big bins at the back of the Meadow. Happy days...
