Hello Townie
Had a problem as I told you earlier getting on my forum but glad I have now sorted it.
Have you put your tree up yet and the trimmings. Will it be a fresh turkey or
a frozen one from last year. Nice juicy shoulder of pork and a piece of gammon.
Orange juice and water followed by Dandelion and Burdock, what more could you ask for.
HO  Ho  Ho  Its time to go.
Father Christmas

Ho Ho Ho  Afternoon Everyone
Yesterday I went to see my Reindeers. They look really well and ready for the job on 25th December.
The nets were full of excellent quality hay and buckets of fresh spring water.
I almost forgot to tell you where they are. The field next to Evesham Golf Course.
Work to do. Ho Ho Ho
Father Christmas.

Hello Townie
Managed to get back on the forum. It was about mid 80s I think, drew big crowds.

Hello Townie and Edmund.
The junction of Ashted Row,  Great Francis Street and Vauxhall Road was quite big and had an island in the middle with an ornate
Gas Light in the middle that had arms coming out of it.
It was very old and had been used for horse drawn carriages, The gas light did look as if you could hang your hat on it.
Hope this info helps, its easy to see why it was known by two names.

Does anyone remember the river at Tamworth being dammed one Saturday so that they could get all the rubbish out.
Old style Prams, pushchairs and bikes came out. A lot of handmade coloured bottles were found, these would be at
least from Victorian times. Did they make bottles and glassware in Tamworth. I have one of the bottles, square and green in colour.
A lot of the bottles were square.
Best wishes
Gerald.

Evening Everyone
Soon be time to take cutting of a number of plants such as Black Currants.
Use good strong growth, weak growth will produce very weak plants.
Keep looking and do remember to clean all your garden tools.
Take care
Gerald.
