Morning all,

How can you all be so bright and cheerful in the morning, as you know I went to the daughters last night for a bonfire party. I enjoyed myself and so did the kiddies. Do you think Guy Fawkes night is dying out? I think this year was very quiet both Friday & Saturday.

John can you remember the fires we used to have around Nechells, with all that demolition going on the kids had a great source of bonfire wood. I remember one that must have been in 1963 at the bottom of Ashted Row that got so big the Council took it over it was the biggest bonfire I had ever seen.

I think the problem is now that it is so expensive, have you seen the price of a box of fireworks. You need to take out a second mortgage. The other thing that nobody has private bonfires in the back garden any more. They seem to be a thing of the past, at one time everybody who had a garden that was big enough had one. It was a good excuse to burn the garden rubbish along with any domestic rubbish that was burnable. Still I suppose its called progress.

Phil

Phil, do you remember the huge one we used to have on the corner of Scholefield Street and Oliver Street, known locally as the landmine,
It was still burning 3 days later.

Although I say it myself, I'm a good cook and I learnt by the hard process of looking after myself for a good number of years in my youth. But one thing my wife does not allow is me cooking in her kitchen. It's not the cooking she minds, but she says I do not clean up properly afterwards.

John

I remember those large bonfires all over Nechells as I say sourcing firewood was not a problem, but this one at the bottom of Ashted Row was enormous, it was where they later built the new Secondary School what was it called Duddeston Manor School? I used to like bonfire night much later because it saved us money. We could just drop lorry loads of timber off at the local bonfire for free. We could even take it to the local parks who were organising bonfires.

Couple of pics from the London to Brighton run.
I like the attitude of the woman in the red gloves, who does she think she is.
