In the play ground there was a shelter when it was raining we all used to get under it.

Also all the classes having to go to the rooms under the middle school for the nit nurse, .

  15. Hiya any one leave hinde house in 83 what you all doing now?
  16. Did you actually live there , we did and it was no different than any where else, There were big families and every one knew who they were and knew not to tangle with them as they stook together what ever, It got rougher before the houses got knocked down, yes the joy riders always ended up on wincobank hill but better there than on the street , (not that im agreeing with joy riding ) and then the burnt out cars were left for the police to find, when they eventually turned up, just like now really.
