Happy Days - a Memory of Frizington.

I lived at High Dyke opposite Bewley's farm, I went to St. Pauls school and remember Mr T Moore the head teacher, farther down from our house was Trevaskis's shop which always smelt of firelighters, on the other side of the road was McCurry's shop next to the house where I was born. I remember going to Mr Bewshers house and giving him slices of bread for his geese and he would give us a couple of old pennies then we used to go and rob his goose gogs (gooseberries). In May we used to get dressed up in all kinds of things and walk in two's along the road while somebody else knocked on the doors asking for " a penny for the gala", we would go and spend the money on drinks and crisps, happy days, Frizington will always have a place in my heart.
