  4. Street games during the War years.

    Does anyone remember the game piggy? It was played with a piece of wood ,part of a brush steel about 2-3 inches long pointed at one end and a piece of wood about 2 foot long of similar thickness used as a bat. The idea was to hit the point and knock the piggy as far as possible.David Morris from Clock Face would have won multiple gold medals if it was an olympic sport.

    Does anyone remember the large brick built air raid shelter in the1940`s. I remember a young lad called Eric Paul roller skating on top of it's thick concrete roof. It seems just like yesterday.
