Comments: Have Just Purchased one of the old Quarry Workers Cottages on Leicester Road, I am Very surprised to Find that they have been completely missed off any information on this website. I am very interested in the history of these cottages, and thought the Groby website would be a good place to start research, but to my surprise, and disappointment, not even a red dot on the Groby Map mentioning them.

Comments: I used to live in Groby at 6 Parkside but moved away in 1978. Have driven through since and seen the pictures of the village on the website: little has changed apart from the playing fields behind the infant school being built on. I went to Martinshaw and then Brookvale schools.
I daresay no-one remembers me or my family (Robin and Anne - parents- and Janet and Fiona- sisters) but if you do drop me a line...!!

Your Name: Cathy Jenkins
Country/Location: Groby
Comments: Where do I start? What a fantastic website!! My son Harry, who is 6 years old plays on this website everyday he loves looking at all the old photographs and doing the puzzles. And I think it is great too. I have taken Harry and my youngest son Owen who is 14 months old around Groby many times for walks, but it is only since Harry has seen this website that he has taken an interest in all the old buildings. I took him a walk on Friday and we were out for hours drawing the Old Hall and the Stamford Arms and his favourite was the old School, which he thought was so interesting when I told him that when I was a little girl it was a Bread shop and my mum used to take me there every Saturday morning to get Fresh bread and Cream cakes. He loves this website and so do I. Keep up the good work.

02.04.07

Your Name: Martyn Collier
Country/Location: Gloucestershire
Comments: I found this a very interesting and well presented site. I found it while researching my Collier ancestors who lived and worked in Groby (mainly as wheelwrights and carpenters) from at least the 1760's through until the late 1870's. I was brought up just a few miles from Groby and still have family living nearby.
Thank you for putting this site together.

(John Collier born in Groby in 1769 was my 4 times great Grandfather (he was a wheelwright) and as a Joseph Collier who was also a wheelwright and lived in Groby was buried in 1772 the family may have been there earlier. The last of my ancestors born in the village was my Great Grandfather George Harry Collier born in Groby on 21 NOV 1863 who lived until 1948. When the 1871 census was taken my GG grandparents and my G grandfather lived in the Rookery.)

Your Name: Jef Groby
Country/Location: Geneva, Switzerland
E-mail Address: groby@unhcr.org
Comments: Several years ago I visited Groby hoping to find some clue as to the origins of the name. A thorough search of the grave stones in the church yard revealed not a one. The question therefore remains intact. Is Groby part of my history? If so, I can only breath a sigh of relief that my ancestors did not carry forward the name of the neighbouring village, Ratby.
There is a minor Groby diaspora. I come from the US branch, but have discovered other Grobys who are very definitely French.

Comments: Wow, what a cool website! I think it has a great layout and everything. I was looking for Groby's drama group online when I discovered this and I think it's amazing! Although I don't live in Groby I think it is a great village and I lived there 10 years ago on Garendon Way, and I recently had a paper round along Ratby Road, Woodbank Road, Hillary close and Carmen Grove.

Comments: I last entered comments on 14.8.03, and things haven't changed, Groby is a fantastic place to live, the website is brilliant, the Parish Council however want to try and support the residents, who voted them in the first place, instead of trying to do their own thing and avoid situations they don't like !! (although that might just be the xxxxxxxx!!)

Comments: I had the pleasure of visiting Groby in 1997. It was my first time to the U.K.. The people of Groby made my visit so welcoming and special. When my friend and I went to the village church, we were assigned ladies to help us understand the service. My church now uses that method to help our visitors after I mentioned it at a council meeting. I enjoyed the footpaths in and around the area. We don't have that kind here. Someday I would like to return. Thank you for making me feel so at home. Many Blessings, Sally Flint
