I dont know who comes up with these ideas of what fun is all about.

I can see it being a bit of fun rolling down a hill or on a river in one of them.

But to me not in a paddling pool.

It's probably fun for the kids of today, as they don't know of the fun we all had as children..They don't have the freedom to go out and play, ride their bikes and be gone all day like we all did..

Aye we had fun playing on the tip and slag heaps when we were kids

Ah, yes, our fun was climbing trees at the Long Wall, Winstanley and collecting conkers. Camping in Dean Wood, playing rounders and cricket in the street and local fields. The tanner rush at the Queens cinema, Pem. on a Saturday afternoon and making bows and arrows afterwards because we had been watching cowboys and indians, in black and white.

Anybody play skilly? The turquoise does not compliment the colours of the building.

Mr Pilkington, ah, yes, young man, the Three Shops. Joyce's and old Harry Mason's but what was the name of the third one? It always intrigued me.
