  • There is a man know by many in the town as jurmanji, (after the movie) he is in his eighties and likes going out to all the hip night spots dressed in a full safari suit. He is best know for his suit, handle bar moustache and for looking a young women

  • recently a bible basher has been hanging around preaching about the "THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTLY" why dosnt he just shut the f**k up!!!!!
  • One local street entertainer is Peni. Every one who has been to Chester-le-street knows of this wonder he is pale skinny and looks like a heroin addict
  • I think Jack the Hat died.
  • i think old jack the hat is dead, now there is that crazy ginger old man who looks in bins on the front street
  • Micheal Ramm is a quite a "street Entertainer" as he is more often than not seen with a bottle of "white shite" and a packet of lambert. With his trade mark jacket with a white strip accross it, also he will do anything for 6 ... u all know what i mean ;) ... he will also date anything that is 15 or under. or 40 or older.. the middle ages ain't good enough for him.
  • 'Evil Edna' - the most vicious and unforgiving traffic warden ever known to man. She's been doing the circuit for years and probably deserves an OBE, or a slap, depending on your viewpoint. FYI- top hat died, not long after his whippet died. Poor thing.
  • There is often a busker or two at the south end of Front Street on the west side (where there is often also a roundabout for kiddies). Most of them just sing along karaoke-style but occasionally you get an actual musician!
  • 'Uncle Alf' is a jolly old soul who makes animals out of balloons.
