    If its the same family me and my sister used to play with Lisa when they lived on Monfa Road in Bootle when we were kids, we last heard from Lisa a few years ago when she was getting married. Her brother Nicky lives in Elizabeth Road Bootle. I now live in Oz so can't be of much more help but I will ask my sister if she can be of any help.

  • Re: surrey street by Tom Roberts (Member 10014271) on 10-Jul-2000
    Surrey St was off Hawthorne Road, near to Aintree Road. All the streets in that section were "counties". Rutland, Sussex, Surrey, Suffolk, Norfolk, Essex, and Kent. I think some of them still exist, with new housing.

THE BEAST OF CAPTAINS GREEN by idd (Member 10011093) on 27-Apr-2000
It is coming up to the anual HOWLING on Captins Green, facing the MOUNT HOTEL IN GALSWOTHY AVENUE.
At the first full moon in May of each year, at approx 2am, the figure of a yet unidentified male is seen pushing a wheelbarrow around the GREEN, whislt howling with joy.
Faint echos of "more" "more", can also be heard.
Does anybody know the identity of this mystery man.
