  1. Hi Phyll.one of the houses gone was needed for the "callout" man.His job was to go out if there were any road incidents.He was WELL PAID!!Cos he was allocated 2hrs even if he was there for less.He used to go out for lights, dead cats and dogs,clearing up debris etc.By that he could get "paid hours" in his week well over 100.Acouple of names i remember there at ARCHIE brook!Arthur Kelsall and David Stacey.They were on staff at depot.

  10. HORT,we spent many good years going to THE WILLOWS and to Weaste!Your step dad may not have mentioned about the hot potato machine there. When we were kids going to matches there, like all the grounds they had lads and girls going round selling crisps etc.Well at Weaste they had just inside the gate a hot potato machine.When we got home after one winter match,we read that it had exploded just after the ground cleared!Mashed potato all over eh?.
