The Chippy closed, if I owned it I would have been frying from 8 o clock in the morning taking advantage of all the on lookers

What are they filming David? Amazing that the residents are so understanding as to agree to this inconvenience.

I feel sure the residents will have been recompensed for staying out of the way.

Bet the residents would love to be in the film!
I could just imagine the Scholes of old being used as a location - if it had been left alone!
What a keep-sake that would have been...

Hi Veebee, I often wonder what Scholes would be like if they had left It alone. What would father Lappin say about today? 😳

No doubt he would have us quaking in our shoes Titus! Especially the ones stood up at the back of the church when there was empty pews! Mind you there are plenty of those nowadays! Hope you are keeping well.
