I used to cut through the 'squatters' as we called the huts, to go to Fallow Road before Grotto Gardens was built. I eventually got sacked for organising a srike among the ...

Re: paintings

I bought the beach one at a car boot sale and my wife bought me the other one for my birthday 25 years ago. We went to Alf's house and looked at dozens of pictures, including some of them shown on this site, before I picked this one.





I hope these pictures show OK

Re: PARKING IN SOUTHTYNESIDE & SOUTH SHIELDS

I understand that the council will only introduce a residents parking scheme in a particular area, if enough residents request it. we have one where I live which means that you can often get parked outside your own house. HOWEVER, there is no way visitors can park. To get a permit, the vehicle MUST ...
