plus why do people think they have to dress as scuffy as possible nowadays and it aint just the teenagers. feel out of place with no tatoos, piercings , jeans or a dirty jacket with a sodding obligatory hood on it.

Anyway Grammar lad...happy 80 th for last year.

As for the improvements (!) you are spot on....there is nothing worth coming to see in Accrington....regardless of that publication 'Amazing Accrington'.
It used to be a very good place to come to.
Good market, some interesting independent shops....and people who were the salt of the earth.
Alas now all gone....well, there are still some salt of the earth folk about, but there are lots of the other kind too.
Hi Margaret,
We come from the same place but separated by many years (as you can tell by my age). I'm ex Factory Bottom, Woodnook St. Mary's, etc. etc. and stumbled across Accyweb when looking for my old friends Terry Gorman (47 Nuttal Street) and Ronnie Kenyon (Belfield Road). As far as Accrington today is concerned, at least the Town Hall and Market Hall have not (yet) been torn down, but the Con Club seems to have gone.
Like your enthusiasm. Send some to me if you have any spare!
My old friend Les Rooks lives in Clayton, although a youngster being still in his late 70s.
Keep going.....

Oh Grammarlad....that makes us almost related. I would imagine the the clough and the lodges were your playgrounds too.
I do not know the people you mention....other than Les Rooks and I only know him from being on here...we have never met.

You are just ten years older than me.....a generation.

I have no spare enthusiasm for the has not been well looked after.
Too much time and money has been spent on top dressing, rather than on the soil. Vanity projects rather than tackling the decline....and excusing inactivity by telling us it is the same everywhere.
What my dear old Ma would call 'fur coat and no knickers' kind of a town.
No....I can think of very little to recommend it(other than what was mentioned in my earlier post).
If I were younger, I would up sticks.

I looked forward to retirement, thoughts of days spent either in the local, enjoying the company of other retired folk or else taking a few trips out, I believe it's known as leisure time.
Instead the pubs of an afternoon are full of spoilt brats of all ages making the time seem like being in a school full of retards, as for travelling, it seems to be a disease spread throughout the bastard class, (can't call them unemployed they are too busy ensuring they are unemployable and making a long deserved rest intolerable).
If you know of a pub that opens in the afternoon and welcomes normal folk, please P.M. me it's name don't put it on here, the idiots might just get to know of it and ruin it.
P.M.for you fella
