  1. Sue....the way my mother used it, I always thought it was a polite way of saying "stop runnin round like an idiot"
  2. Hiya......I lived and worked at lightwood in the 70's it was known as Lightwood house, it housed mentally and physically handicapped people, it was opened in approx 1974/75 previously it had been the old RAF Aradrome Lightwood Norton, the RAF houses had been done up and became housing for the staff, I was told while I was there that the staff housing used to be in Derbyshire and the hospital in Sheffield which was only across the carpark, hope this may be of help to someone.
