Springfield residents reminisce on the radio

Published 13 February 2018

Residents at Springfield Independent Living Scheme in Castleford shared their fondest memories when they were joined by Five Towns Radio’s Trevor Wainwright. 

The presenter visited the scheme on Tuesday 13 February and spoke to residents about the district and their memories of the area.

Margaret who has lived at the scheme for the last seven years, spoke about how she isn’t originally from Castleford but loves the area. "I was born and grew up in Leeds but when I met and married my husband we moved here and I have never looked back. My family come to see me; I meet them in the lounge with my friends and they love it. They love Castleford! I like to get out and about with them and have a walk around the town. The shops have changed a lot over the years and we’ve lost a lot of the pubs but I’m 87 this year and I still go out and do all of my own shopping. I can here. Springfield isn’t a nursing home, it is definitely independent living."

The show will be broadcast on Five Towns Radio in the near future, so listen out for more from our Springfield residents.
