  1. Hi Non Sibi it sounds like you worked at the Town Hall around the same time as me. I was in the Borough Treasurers then in the computer room from 1966 to 1969.
  2. My grandson’s Aunty (my youngest daughter) is only one year older than him.
  3. The boy stood on the burning deck Selling peas a penny a peck Did he wash his dirty neck Did he heck I never really understood what this was about.
  4. I am watching but it is not looking very promising at the moment.
  5. I'm not sure but he worked behind the bar until 1986.
  6. Thanks for the photo Dave it brought back many happy memories. You must have been working there when my dad was his name is Tommy Eccleston.
  7. 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.
  8. Someone mentioned bally ann day. I remember my mum using this phrase and I think it meant the day before payday. Does anyone know the origin of this, why bally ann?

    Nanny Goat Park

    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.
  10. 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
  11. Don't look at me with them eyes.
  12. 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.

    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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
