    For Everybody From Scunthorpe

    Dunno whats the word youre trying to not censor lol
    edit - I realise. Maybe because Scunthorpe is a place and S****thorpe isnt?

    I remember being in Scunthorpe once and taking a taxi. Asked the driver what it was like round there, "F**king awful", he so eliquently replied! ;-)

    hey i lived in sunny scunny for 19 years..i moved there of my own free will...i only left to be with my bf now my hubby but i only live about 12 miles away...its really not that bad

    So far so good donny .......... :whistling:

    Well as it happens, I used to live in Scunthorpe and my little sister was born there. However as I was only three/four at the time and we moved away, I can only remember nice things - like the nursery school with the big gates that I went to down the road; the milkman delivering by horse and cart and letting us ride with him to the end of the road; the tricycles that me and my older sister had. This would be fifty odd years ago!!

    See this is a good example of the friendliness commonplace in the North. You don't get witty banter like that in old London town now do ya?

    he he he he

    Shall i pretend i'm from scunthorpe just to boost the thread?

    I can make things up about where i was born, lived, worked etc.... ;-)

    Surprisingly a nice town these days on the inside. A bit dire ( & dare i say smelly ) driving into Scunny from Lincoln i'm sure you'll agree but the town centre is seriously ok. Maybe it's because it has the closest B&M bargains to me but i will return soon . BTW friendliest market traders i've ever met in Scunny

    With your avatar you have become an honourarararary member of the exclusive Scunthorpe club. Did you know that Ian Botham (yes the cricketer) once played for Scunthorpe United? The infamous ex England manager Graham Taylor went to school in Scunthorpe. And I went to school with the son of a Chucklebrother.
    I may brag about other "famous" people from Scunthorpe later.

    I tip my hat to you sir. Did you know that the B&M store used to be Woolworths before it moved to the newly built South Parade precinct?
    I remember in the 80's when the market was huge and the outdoor section was full to the brim. Nowadays there are barely 5 stalls! Depressing times.

    As I left when I was four, I have little option but to recall distant memories. I did feel a frisson of pride when Ian played for Scunthorpe - a fact known to more-or-less everyone.
    I think the summit of this epid thread may have been reached - # 24 - who would have thought it ?;-)

    I can't help but feel that you are belittling my thread Chesso. Maybe you feel a hint of regret from not being able to call Scunthorpe your home town? Were you evacuated from there in World War I?

    No, I have in fact added considerably to the epicness of this thread. :-D

    What you mean as part of the first wave of volunteers? Haha!! Before my time but continuing until the present I believe.:w00t:

    Regrets, I have a few but I was born and raised in steel-working areas and found over time that steel towns had a certain similarity - when they were huge and provided the character and the employment for all. :x

    Isn't Wednesday, baby day?

    I'll let you off then Chesso.
    Unfortunately as Scunthorpe Steelworks is owned by Corus jobs are hanging in the balance at the moment. I used to be a Labourer there in my younger years raking out **** metal from the furnaces. Now that was sweaty work!

    Wednesday is baby day but unfortunately the little blighter is refusing to come out into this cruel world! We (meaning the better half) have an appointment at the hospital tomorrow morning to discuss the inducing options. So hopefully we will be a little wiser after that visit, It needs to get out soon or she will explode! People have bets on whether it is a baby or a Hippopotamus she's giving birth to! I don't know where that places me.............

    I built a load of battery chicken cages on a farm just outside Sleaford a few years ago. Not many people know that.

    Now I know what sort of person you are from going to Henrys Freddysmum hehe. I was more a regular at The Baths Hall. Man I loved that place. I used to go and watch all the local bands play each week in the Rock Open and got to know a few.

    Incidently, I used to go Ice Skating at Henrys (before it was Henry Afrikas).

    This thread is going well.



    Still no baby : (
