Happy Days In The 1960s

A Memory of Bridlington

I started coming to Brid for family holidays in 1961 at the age of 5 months!!!  We stayed in a flat owned by Mr Jamroz?? opposite Marks n Sparks.  I remember at the top of the harbour there was a Flintstones roundabout.  I was about 5 yrs old and used to bite my nails.  My mum talked to the guy that ran the ride and he said only little girls who didn't bite their nails could go on - I stopped biting my nails.  Nice one.

I remember watching the Bridlington Queen sinking outside the harbour.  I also remember a 'kids corner' somewhere past the harbour going north - we used to sing "Jesus wants me for a sunbeam" and other such songs and have quizzes - does anyone else remember this?
