It used to be 16, but it has been 18 for a while now.
I have redcar family - near the race course. I was also born in saltburn by seaI was actually born in Saltburn-by-sea, since that is where the nursing home was, but we lived in Redcar.
It was in the North Riding of Yorkshire in those days. Then it became Cleveland for a while, and then Teesside. Then I left
We used to live near the racecourse - in that we could hear it on race days, although we couldn't see it because there was a cemetery in the way, iirc.I have redcar family - near the race course. I was also born in saltburn by sea
Big up the teeside massive
Lee Duffy didn't 'pass on', he died due to being knifed in a fight (started by him) after surviving several attempts on his life. He was the bullied who became the bully and had about as much charm as a common garden slug. Even as dull as Boro is, I can honestly say he didn't really 'add' anything of worth to the region apart from to those who get a bone on over gangster movies. He's that interesting that the only book about him that exists had to be fleshed out with bits about Viv Graham too. Never heard of the other fella.
What a peculiar thing to do. Wrapping them in paper rather than buying tampons obviously.I once bought some tampons in Middlesbrough, and the woman in the shop said 'I'll wrap them in a paper bag so they look like a box of chocolates, pet.' I often wonder what the hell she was talking about.
I lived just round the corner from Blue Hall on the other side of main road from the old bingo hall during the 70s and we're almost the same age. Remember the Red Rec? Many a happy hour spent there as a kid. I went to Norton Board School, which is sadly no longer there. The weird thing is that I've never been able to find photos if the school online - you'd think there must be photos of it somewhere.Hi. Born in Norton but moved to London aged 19. I"m 44 now and live in Folkestone, Kent. Lying in bed one night and suddenly felt homesick. People aren't as friendly down South, I haven't had a good belly laugh for yonks cause Teeside humour is Teeside humour. plus I don't fancy having a massive mortgage following me into my 60s. Drove back to Teeside a few weeks back to look at property, thinking of moving home... You can buy a 3 bedroom terraced house for 70k, whereas it would cost over 400k even in the London shitholes, for example. Trying to get my head around it. I'm done with London and Folkestone. Thinking of Thornaby. I was raised in blue hall, and am working class, albeit not a chavvy one. Sorry for ramble. People think I'm mad for wanting to move back, but Teesiders are friendlier, and most people in the same boat there. What do you think? Funny, the first thing I did when I arrived in a Norton, I walked straight to Norton chippy for a fish pattie. Can't get them anywhere else!!!
So many people come to Boro from Stockton and other Durham dumps that you can't really complain when weird behaviour occurs: It's in their nature
Nah, you've got that wrong. Boro just attracts the more deeply weird people from the surrounding area, doing those areas a favour by removing our undesirables. The undesirables are magnetically attracted to the Boro - a bit like flies round shit.So many people come to Boro from Stockton and other Durham dumps that you can't really complain when weird behaviour occurs: It's in their nature
