I went down Grimesthorpe Road yesterday past the old junior school and along Earl Marshall road I have never seen as much litter about it looked terrible, I know it was also a poorer area of the city but it was not like this in the "old days" who are the "rubbish" who haved moved in.

Bumped into an old Grimesthorpe lad this afternoon in the Benjamin Huntsman, Billy Smith, I think he lived near 'Tfishcake' top Grimesthorpe.

When we were kids mother used to buy potted meat or paloney or sometimes both from the corner shop (Holmes), it went into sandwiches for packing up for Dad or served to us. Potted meat came out of a larger container at the shop and bought in whatever quantity and the paloney was like a red sausage as it had this red skin and purchased one link at a time, it could be spread or served in slices. My question is, is this stuff still around if so did it get any better tasting? And again, I wonder what these original products comprised of. fleetwood

Hi Fleetwood, My mum bought both off them items for the home

I once lived in digs in Pitsmoor on Hanover St, i paid full board not

bad digs but the landlady offered to do my daily pack up each week,

what i got fed up with was beef spread- beef spread- Beef spread

not that i minded so but is all that they sold in shops. :hihi::hihi: Brian
