  1. Childhood rhyme

    I am watching but it is not looking very promising at the moment.

    Does anyone have any photos of Parr and Hardshaw Labour Club. My Dad worked there for many years and I would love to see any old photos.

    Nanny Goat Park was on Recreation Street as far as I remember. We used to play there when I lived in Black Horse Street and had to cross Park Road to get to it.
  8. the stream - west park/notre dame

    I was at Notre Dame 1960 - 1965 and would really appreciate it if anyone who has the school photo would kindly post it. I am not sure of the actual year but I know we only had one full school photo while I was there. Thanks Denise
  9. Old St Helens sayings

    Don't look at me with them eyes.
  10. Where is Croppers Hill?

    I used to live at number 30 Prescot Road which we also knew as Croppers Hill. This was just up from the TA buildings on the same side. I lived there in the 60's and the house we lived in was later demolished and is now just a grassed area.
  11. Cables Club

    I used to go to the Cables club in the mid sixties when they had a disco every week. We were all underage but we were never questioned and couldn't afford to drink much anyway. We always had a good time there.
  12. St Helens accent

    I've not lived in St. Helens for over 40 years after moving first to Wigan then Bolton and then back to Wigan. I have kept my accent and I am proud of it as I think it is a true Lancashire accent. My children call me a scouser when they want to wind me up.
  13. Things you don't see anymore

    I was driving to work today when I saw a flat back lorry with sacks of coal on it. I didn't know they were still around.
