The Hilda Baker story is true, apart from the tripe and onions.

Poor Hylda. Less than ten people attended her funeral.

She wasn't well liked. Co star Jimmy Jewel despised her.

Demolished (along with most of the rest of School Hill) about 10 years ago to make way for new housing.

It looks like this now:

I may have told this one before on here but I lived around the corner from a family in Smithills called the Fairclough's when I was a kid.

There were about 6 kids and they were all dead artistic and theatrical.

My mum worked with their mum at the local doctors surgery and we used to refer to them as the Von Trapps.

Anyway, Hylda Baker was the mum's aunty and after she died, the PRS cheques went to the Fairclough household every time a repeat of anything with HB in it was shown on telly.

They used to get a cheque for about 12p every time an episode of Nearest & Dearest aired.

One of the Von Trapp kids (Neil) was the year above me at school and we were briefly in a band together in the mid-80's.

He played the bass and thought he was king shit but I like to believe that my guitar playing was what really drew the crowds to the music room at Smithills for our lunchtime gigs.

Here he is (on the left in the daft hat) with his band. They're called Queen or summat. Stupid name for a band if you ask me. They'll never take off:

She often lunched in the restaurant at the Capitol Cinema in Churchgate.

The monkey used to perch on her shoulder as she tucked into Tripe and Onions, one of her favourite meals.
Arthur Askey and his lemur were always seen Leverhulme park on a Thursday, the lemur loved manfredis ice cream and used to dry hump the car park ballads
BOLLARDS!!!!!!
And to you, oh I'm using my phone it just puts what it fucking wants and I don't proof read every post

My phone would drive me crazy if I tried to post anything with it.
