Hebburn park 50's

Visiting the park recently, I am sad. In the 1950's that park was the place to be. Tennis courts when Jimmy Trotter charged 3d for 30 mins. Bowls till bedtime, and crazy golf. The entrance where you were met by the smell of alysum, wallflowers, snapdragons, and lobelia. Great work by Benny Ward and co. Sunday nights with a brass band ! Flower shows as well and the "parkie" (Mr. O Rourke) trying to knock you off your bike with a sure shot walking stick and locked the banana slide at 9pm !
