Found this today - NEWSPAPER clipping 1946 St Helens Lancashire


 If you read the small print you can see that just one street in this industrial northern town, Fry Street, Parr, St Helens, Lancashire - my childhood street, had a history of street parties and gathering - here mentioning 150 strong.

These were the days when people were so pleased to be alive, one year after the war ended in 1945, and wanted to be together.

Bonding - 
Wanting to be together to celebrate being in the same street and wanting to lay on events for the children and families.
My Dad is in the photo - not me !! !  - or my Mam.
