Huyton by Geoff Roberts (Member 10030784) on 18-Apr-2001
Come on guys if you were born and grew up in Huyton be proud of it, think of your childhood playing on the plantations on sunny evenigs, knock & run, conkers, shit wrapped up in newspaper, set on fire onthe doorstep of a prick of a neibour Knock & run and when they opened the door their first reaction was to stamp out the fire!! then you knew were the saying o Shit came from. Those days were not that bad!

Memories of the Moss by Trish Fletcher (Member 10018283) on 25-Oct-2000
I am looking for people who have memories of old Page Moss (good or bad) to get together and hopefully have a book published. You dont need to be a writer (all stories will be taped) and someone else will do the hard work of typing up and getting it published.
If you are interested ring either Trish or Sarah on 489 9814.

    Moved down here in the 70's thought I would get away from all the rain but it seems to have found us judging by the past few years :)
    Shame the Bird & Babby has gone. Pat Hingle sent me some pics of Page Moss area and hasn't it changed?
