Has that gone?
Yes, a month or two ago. The rent of the stall was pricing him out apparently. Sailor Sids is still there, but I always preferred Sid Tyas's stall, as did my kids after me.
Sailor Sid's stall is still there. He lives just down the road from me.
Apologies, thought the two Sids were one in the same.

Being only 30-odd not a massive amount has changed...I do miss Butterfield's pub, Wednesday/Thursday nights being busy and Delta Bowl.
Chantry video shop
The opening day of EGS was mad. The counter started falling over, so everyone got kicked out at the back, including those waiting to pay for the records that they then just walked off with. Maybe it was the special appearance of Black Lace that did it!
Wasn't it Sam Fox?!? Or have I just made that up?!?
bloody hell.... John Brittons
that was a wonderland to me as a bairn.
Definitely Black Lace. From a distance there may be a similarity with all that blonde hair I suppose.
the day they broke my heart was when
they demolished the town hall in Hoyland. That day they ripped the heart out of my home town.They also built over a majority of the Cloughs near springwood.They demolished and built houses over the "Wooden School" that'was my infant school... They later demolished the school at Hoyland common at allots corner... that was my Junior School... They literally took my childhood away with a wrecking ball and a Bulldozer... and yes it hurt me deeply.
Hoyland now is a steel/plastic/concrete MESS.... heartless except for one thing..... one very very special thing dear to me.
Salt of the earth.
Not places but activities as a kid:
used to tie all the house door together on burton road down honeywell and bobby knock the lot of em in one go. Proper funny watching them all closing each other doors.
Do kids still play these games?
kids dont know they r born these days with xboxes although the speccys came out as i was growing up. We still laiked out a lot though.
I miss that mate,i tried to sit in the lower west the other week by asking the security guard if it was ok,not a chance,my season ticket is for the ponty and that's where I shall sit,we just fancied watching the game from somewhere else for a change.
Sam Fox opened the McDonalds I think. Well, she was supposed to, we skived off school to see her but she wasn't there. Maybe we had the wrong day or the wrong time; I can't imagine our research was up to much and I still don't know to this day if she actually did or not. Still, a Big Mac is better than double English and I don't suppose she would have let me feel her tits anyway.
Snow. Meks it look cleaner.
Most teenage boys were absent that afternoon hoping she'd open something!
I had a vivid memory that it was Andys Records/EGS?!? But my mid 90's recreational drugs stage is eventually catching up with me!
