I am pleased that it has been decided to keep the street name Wasps Nest (for a new housing estate in Mirfield).

In the early 1920s my mother and father moved there from Cleckheaton.

In 1926 my brother was born there, they then moved to The Knowle where in 1930 I was born.

Mother and dad used to tell us about the time they lived there. It was just a small cottage. But when I arrived they needed a bigger house.

My brother and I are still around to tell the tale!
