Queuing for ice cream at Haigh Hall at the weekend, it was a scorcher!

Comment by ROY RICHMOND on 25th May 2010 at 09:03
The ice cream man will make good money after that boiling weekend, and without the van moving...still, they must make up for the bad winter we have just had, good luck to them all.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 25th May 2010 at 10:31
Why are they obstructing passage along the drive and not queuing parallel to it?


Comment by Mick on 25th May 2010 at 12:28
This is what us British are very good at thats queuing up.

You can go all over the world and you wont find better nation for queueing.

This brings back so many memories of baking hot Sunday afternoons, going to Haigh Hall with my parents.....driving through the cool, shady plantations on the "tractor", (fare 3d), then getting off at the end of the drive up to the hall into glorious sunshine.


Comment by ROY on 25th May 2010 at 15:56
Ernest & Mick, you two are good at MOURNING aswell.

Just let the people get on with it!


Comment by Alf Summers on 25th May 2010 at 17:06
Tractor fare 3d... your going back a bit.


Comment by David on 25th May 2010 at 18:06
I remember the Tractor. I think it started at the main gates at Wigan lane, turned left along the Douglas and worked its way to up Haigh Hall. As kids, ee used to jump on the back to get a free ride for a few yards.


Comment by Malc on 25th May 2010 at 20:33
Ernie, can't see much traffic going up and down the drive. What a site for the ice cream man to see all those people.


Comment by irene roberts nee griffiths on 26th May 2010 at 10:02
Yes Alf, I'm going back to around 1958-1962 or so, when I would have been 6-10 years old. My friend's grandad used to take the fares and it was 3d, but he would often let us on free.

Comment by pauline speirs on 27th May 2010 at 21:56

Comment by irene roberts nee griffiths on 28th May 2010 at 08:49
Hope all goes well Josie.....have a wonderful day!


Comment by Malc on 29th May 2010 at 19:28
PAULINE, you dont sound like a Wiganer, because if you was you would know Wigan has more beautiful places to offer than any other town.


Comment by pauline speirs on 31st May 2010 at 22:18
its just that it seems to be the only beauty spot that is ever photographed on here don't people ever get more out and about and photograph all the other beautiful places around Wigan was what i meant!
