This Saturday i am off to Sheffield to watch my team Swindon try to get back on a winning track.

My Great Grandad Frank Halke was born in the city....his father George and his wife Annie lived in Fawcett Street....George worked as a grinder in the steel trade.
Later on in life my Great Grandad moved back nearer home....his daughter Hettie my Gran(mothers side)was born in Shepperton.

Windle who comes onto the forum is a direct descendant of the Halke family...she and her family are still in Sheffield today.
I have been there many times....but each time i go i think about Great Grandad...did he ever go to Brammal Lane to watch the footy....or down the road to watch Sheffield Wednesday....i will never know.

But i will be walking down the roads he most probably walked himself.

Regards to you all.
