  2. The knitted dolls covering your toilet rolls, a kitchenette, push button tea caddie on the wall, putting a tanner in the telly for it to work.parrafin heaters, power cuts, tin bath, eiderdowns, candy stripped sheets, corporation pop, butties out of a bread bag , bus fares that cost 2p Desert wellies, oxford bags, reel to reel tape recorders, box brownies. Patches on your elbows, loads of kids piled in a car from the street to see Blackpool lights

  4. Why I ask in curiosity do you know who I am .. Oh dear
  5. I went to Merton bank school in very early 70's I can honestly say it was the worst experience of my life. Words I couldn't possibly put on here to explain, It still makes me grit my teeth if I have to drive past now over 40yrs later. I still have a scar on my arm from where a teacher hit me.. Can't believe I wrote that thread and not one expletive managed to get typed.. Oh happy days ..
  6. I would just like to say a huge big thank you to the lovely people who have got the headstone for the babies in the unmarked graves. My mum has just found out last week her sister died at 4 weeks old in 1940, and she is actually buried here. Thank you so much for all you have done, my mum is so touched and grateful as she was and is now able to pay her respects to her baby sister after 70 years

The vintage fair Great I thought lets go and have a look, got my fella to come over who lives 30 miles away, this may be a good afternoon out, my god how wrong was I , a disgrace is all I can say. I wonder now why the town is dead Who organised it should be disciplined, it was terrible . Did anyone else see it .. A pathetic excuse for a kids funfare with about 4 rides outside the church.. Terrible . I went home in disgust .
  9. Well I live in parr I must be living in some time warp as I have never had or heard of any trouble so god knows where you people lived. I was born in parr moved out and have actually come back to live for the past six years, so please do not tar us all with the same brush. There are a lot of decent hard working people that live here.
