Ive had none this year, it's usual for me to have at least a couple, but none so far this year, come to mention it i didnt have any trick or treaters this year, looking at the age of the ones last year, they would all probably be int pub somewhere

I remember when we went carol singing down Wallgate,the pub at the bottom of Queen Street used to give us two shillings (ten pence), we felt like millionaires..

Penny for the Guy, May Queens, Carol Singers, all consigned to history sadly.
Don't get me going about kids of today. No doubt most of the members will have the same conception. MERRY XMAS
