    Travellers at Haresfinch Park

    They've gone. They have bagged up all their rubbish and left them by the bins - albeit against the regs - for the council to collect hopefully ASAP before the local yoofs kick and throw them and the contents over the park.

    BJL, my spy informs me that they appear to be behaving themselves, bagging all their rubbish and stacking it near waste bins. Hopefully they are tourists and will move on leaving little or no mess or damage to the park or surrounding area.

    Travellers at Haresfinch Park

    The brewery was Thwaites Brewery in Blackburn. They descended on the historic brewery mob handed and ripped out all the copper pipes and other metals to be weighed in. It is estimated they caused circa £250 k damage and the brewery is now closed. it is alleged that the Gipsy King of this family contacted the owners and told them if they paid him £20k he would stop the thieving and vandalism in an hour. It is also alleged that the police did little or nothing to intervene to stop this crime, and were, in fact spectators to it. The problems that confront the police in the highly sensitive PC world we now find ourselves in is that certain elements of society have attained the title/status of being "ethnic". This means that they will immediately play the race card should anyone oppose criticises or offend them, and they will call them racists, fascists, nazis and haters. The only solution I can see to obtain a level playing field is that we white indigenous Britons band together and explore the legal avenues so we can acquire "ethnic status" in our own country. I'm being serious. Let's face it we seem to be the only group to whom the laws of the land apply, and who feel the full weight of the law if we break it.

    From the moment I saw their encampment on Thursday morning something seemed strange. Most of the caravans were huge, in immaculate condition and their vehicles were 4 x 4's, Suv''s huge estate cars, again all in good condition. Add to this the awnings and gazebos they erected and it looked more like a caravan rally on a racecourse as organised by the Caravan Club. Then it dawned upon me. There where no transit vans or pick up trucks with sign writing for gutters, soffits facias, block paving, tree felling or any of the other trades/services they offer. It now seems they are not gypsies in the usual sense, but a travelling band of French campers enroute for Scotland. Hi Di Hi Campers ! Here's hoping they'll be on their way soon and leave little or no mess.
  5. Could it be a side effect of having a purely vegetarian diet - you SPROUT another head ?
  6. Dunno nsso, but in the third pic up from the bottom, the lady with her back to us with arms akimbo appears to have two heads.
  7. It looks interesting, but I'm a bit confused by the pics. Is it an indoor car boot sale that serves food, or is it an eatery that has a clutter themed decor ? added 14 minutes later Either way, I wish them success in their venture.
  8. Wasn't he one of the reporters on the tea time Tonight programme ? Had a Scottish accent, a small beard and wore a trilby ?
  9. Well, I watched it. Something of a let down. Here we had two Liverpudlian actors who are labouring under the misapprehension that being Scousers their every inane utterance is hysterically funny. But I have a few questions. Firstly why is it on this show and on the similar themed Bargain Hunt whenever they are interested in an object, they manage to negotiate the ticket price down to sometimes fifty percent of the asking price ?. Would this work for me in an antique shop if I wasn't accompanied by a film crew ? Unless I missed it, at no part of the programme was St Helens mentioned or shown on their route map. For me the only saving grace was the presence of expert Catherine Southon, who we saw rather a lot of in the auction segment. My finaly question is to our Robbob. Is Catherine as nice in real life as her tv persona ?

    Craft Fair & Fun Day at Victoria Park

    There was also a pirate themed event on in Liverpool on Saturday and Sunday. Nothing happens for weeks then several events happen on the same days in different places.

    Thank you for that information knockaloe. Hadn't heard about the attempted lynching of the head prefect. This was on reflection not so much a seat of learning that you graduated from, as more a place you survived. The saying what does not kill you makes you stronger springs to mind. Best wishes to both yourself and Mr. Bennett.

    When I joined in 1958 the teachers in the first year were : 1A. ( Jazz ) Taylor 1B Griggs 1C Gregory 1D Smart I can remember a visit to Speke Hall but cannot remember going to the airport. I remember Keith Bennett. All the boys were both in awe and terror of this guy who was fearless. I am unaware of him bullying any boys, but him and Sid Griggs didn't get along to put it mildly. For readers fortunate enough to have escaped this teaching establishment at the bottom of North Road, to help you understand better what Master Bennett was like, think Biff Tannen, Marty McFly's nemesis in the Back To The Future film trilogy. I remember certain incidents of his exploits. Once during break time he entered Sid's classroom, took his cane from the top of the cupboard where it was kept and twisted into a pretzel shaped knot. He then left a note next to it saying - and I remember it to this day - the fantum strikes agen. I remember the hymn book throwing incident. as you say it was during a break and it must have been raining as we where all corralled in the hall. Griggs came out of a classroom that opened onto the hall. As he turned to walk toward Dopey's office, an object came flying through the air and struck Sid on his back. He spun around to identify the culprit, ( innocent faces all round ) he spotted Master Bennett, in his rage he grabbed him by his lapels, pulled him to him, whereupon Keith kneed him in the groin. Sid cried out in shock and agony, his legs buckled and clutching his plums he collapsed against the wall. What the outcome of this incident was for Keith I do not know. What became of him I don't know. Does anyone ?

    House in the entry

    Interesting photo's Rob. Looked in a copy of A to Z to see if it had a name, but none shown. As the opening at the George Street end does not line up with Haydock Street, I assume it is not a continuation. Being in an old part of the town, if it hasn't got a name, perhaps we could have an onsite competition to come up with one ? As we have a tradition of naming roads and streets after local politicians, we could have a section of suggestions on these lines. How about : Grunewald Ginnel Rimmer Road. Labour Lane Wasters Way As the Council has recently supported Liverpool Pride, how about suggestions that encourage tolerance and inclusivity ? Pride Parade Back Passage Rear Entry Gay Grove Or, a name that sums up the town centre Desolation Boulevard Skid Row Dead End Street. Perhaps the sites PTB can organise a poll ?

    Where am I ?

    If I walk down Fleet Lane and stand at the top of Berrys Lane I am in Parr. If I walk to the other end of Berrys Lane I am in Sutton. At what point during my stroll do I walk out of Parr and into Sutton ? And, if I live in Stafford Road, is my "area" address West Park, Toll Bar, Thatto Heath, Ravenhead or Grange Park ? And which of these "area tags" is the most up-market.

    Extinct Species ?

    Thanks Dave ! this is the first info I have seen that they are still alive and kicking in St. Helens. I visited the link you gave and was amazed at how many local lodges there were. Good info on the site, but a shame about the annoying pop-ups.
