Then the ground shakes, tar is forgotten Distant tremors echo down the narrow street A roar of horses galloping, soldiers marching to an invisible drum? The noise becomes a crowd, emerging round the corner. Miners. Black and filthy, swinging snap tins, their shift done. Voices and clogs pass by, going home to washes, food, family. The street is quiet again. The tar bubbles flattened by the clamour. go to: https://library.haltonbc.info/let-me-tell-you-a-story/ for the full exhibition The views and opinions expressed are those of the speaker / author and may not reflect or represent the views and opinions of Halton Libraries.

A little gem, now sadly gone but stories and memories linger on. Cinema, dances, bingo hall, the elders of Runcorn can recall a meeting place beyond compare to show their moves and fashion flare. Young Hugh came down from Geordie land- he had no choice, his fate was planned. He grew up hardy, through the years: some fights, some laughter, also tears. A teenager right at the start of rock and roll, he looked the part, a teddy boy, sharp suit, slicked hair, iconic music they all shared. Famous names, the Beatles too, excitement building, joining the queue. a night of dancing, chippy then home- they had it all, no need to roam. Lots of mates, good times and girls, the beat generation, a social whirl. One young lady caught his eye in a passageway as he walked by. “Here, can you take this cup?” He looked her down, then looked her up. So courting started, then wedded bliss. His early traumas he didn’t miss. He put his roots down in this place, a life well run in the human race. A spot where he can really belong on the staircase of life, with memories strong.

Walled in by magazines, knitting patterns and boxes of might-be-needed things. We sniff up the tang of Cherry Blossom shoe shine, musty cloths and a manky mop. Blood red beets and tiny vinegared skulls glisten in trembling jars. A jangle of keys for doors to lost worlds- we are tied in with string in our prison. We hold our breath and each other, listening for the drone of approaching bombers. The sudden halt of an engine, the deafening silence- “is this one for us?” Not this time, it rocks the nearby school and we can breathe again. The dreams still haunt me, the child’s mind like a sponge absorbing good and bad. But I saw the beating heart of London rising above a sea of rubble, defiant in the smoke- St Paul’s, a symbol of hope, the turning of the tide. sailing out on open water under a wide open sky or under the grimy spires of a Northern town freedom tastes the same- glorious. go to: https://library.haltonbc.info/let-me-tell-you-a-story/ for the full exhibition The views and opinions expressed are those of the speaker / author and may not reflect or represent the views and opinions of Halton Libraries.

My sister was trying to get the fire going and dropped some paper on the rug. It caught light and the fire quickly spread to the carrycot. I was pulled away, but not before my legs had been burnt. I spent my first few years in Alderhey hospital having skin grafts and operations to improve my condition. When I went to school, I was behind the other children, as there had been little education in hospital. I remember teaching myself to swim at school swimming lessons at Runcorn baths. The teacher left me in the shallow end, as they thought I couldn’t join. After months in bed in hospital, I was a good observer and I watched the class and practiced, until I mastered it. go to: https://library.haltonbc.info/let-me-tell-you-a-story/ for the full exhibition The views and opinions expressed are those of the speaker / author and may not reflect or represent the views and opinions of Halton Libraries.

Where will the next strike be we silently wonder Will we lose our homes, our lives, or please God not each other As we hear the crashes to earth, not knowing who has been hit, Who will be next? Will we find craters where friends once lived Crumbled buildings to be searched for those who don't make it through As Doodlebugs filled night skies and we pray for tomorrows of blue. go to: https://library.haltonbc.info/let-me-tell-you-a-story/ for the full exhibition The views and opinions expressed are those of the speaker / author and may not reflect or represent the views and opinions of Halton Libraries.

I had to go alone to the hospital. It felt like a long ride there and when we got into the ward, it was very long and the windows were tall and narrow with arches at the top. They were covered with bottle green blinds, which made the light very dim and eerie. Outside the windows, a platform ran the length of the ward. On Sunday the beds were turned towards the windows and the families could stand on the platform and see into the ward. This was the only contact I had with my family for 3 months.

There was no security in place at that time. It was so different to how it is now. I then took a bus trip to Virginia and then on to New York. At the time, my Father worked for Bowater Paper and the company office in New York looked after me there.

When I got there, there was a queue of boys waiting to audition. I went in first and I sang for Mr Dale. When he heard me sing, he smiled and dismissed the other boys, announcing that he’d made his choice. That’s when I joined Dudley Dale and his gang of Singers and Comedians.
