Sad Passing Of Great Friend Trev Woolley From Notts

Posted (edited)

Hi all, just to let people know of my great friend Trevor Woolley from Chilwell Notts who died in hospital last Thursday from Cancer.

We had many years of going to soul gigs from the Torch ,Winsford, Bretby ,Notts Palais, Britt club, Plessey and many many more.

A great friend over the years as we used buy a lot of records together and he got me back into the soul scene ten years ago.

My condolences to his wife,family and friends.

 

To Trev from Terry, hope they play them sounds up there.

Sad news Trev or Trigger as we called him, was a nice guy but he seemed to vanish over the last couple or so years, we spent a lot of nights with him when he traveled up North with his work or Soul Nights. I know he had a few problems over the last year or so & I hope he sorted them before his passing, our thoughts are with his family.

R.I.P. Trev. :hatsoff2:

a sobering fact that life is all too short and that we make of it, what we can. not knowing trev is of no consequence,....what is, is that he was one of us, loving the music as we have loved it and making many close friends along the way.

 

may he be at peace. deepest sympathy to all his family.

 

may & rob

Trev Woollley, from Attenborogh lane Chilwell, was my best friend from 1969 when were 15 through to 1975 when life and women meant we moved on. For that period of time we were virutally inseperable as friends. From travelling to Soul Nights, Forest Games, work, socialising, the Brit at Trent Bridge, in fact just about everywhere, even sharing our 21st party which included snother friend Nigel Wagstaff.

Travelling together either by hitch hiking, stealing onto trains, or blagging lifts we managed to get to Blackpool Mecca, Vava, the Casino in October 1973, Leeds Central, Sale all dayers in fact wherever there was a soul event, we tried to get there. We regulary attended the Bali Hai down stairs in the Palais, but our regular soul night was the Brit Club where we celebrated our 18th birthdays. We never actually made the Torch because on the night that he went the club was raided and closed, this resulted in the police turning us away. Another popular hang out was the Manchester Unity in Beeston Notts. He was a great mate,, A few years ago he contacted me and we renewed our friendship and began the reminicing of our soul and speed infected youth.

thereisnt enough space to write everything about those days and the adventures we had, especially the 3 F.A cup finals we went to. Id love to tell you but they are special memories meant to make me smile now that he's gone

RIP Trev, one of the original soulies

Nice post mate.

 

I don't think I knew Trev - but as my mate Rob says that matters not. God bless the lad and I send my thoughts to his family.
