Re: Leslies lovely Sports Field 1950
My sentiments exactly Tom and Lillian. Our landing window in Quarry Road overlooked the bowling green and I used to look forward to sports day. The bowling green was kept immaculate by the green keepers namely Bob Russell, old Mr Thackeray and Dennis Walton. Many times did I see Mr Russell on his hands and knees picking out fine weeds. If I did a climb on to the bowling club Mr Thackeray would be after you in his sandshoes followed by a clout around the ear if he caught you. Like you both mention it's a sad loss to Hebburn
