Why it floods...
Walton High School by any chance?
I think this has run off the Marston Road pitch after a vigourous training session by those Victoria chaps
The Venerable Mrs Seed reckons you still need to water the hanging baskets/pots when it rains!.
(Stop moaning ya retard! as bit of precipitation will do your napper the world of good! )
Fingers crossed for tues', Middle seedling has his!
Colleague had a photo' sent to her earlier showing Sandon Road flooded by the garage. Just had a call warning of several floods on road twixt Stafford & Eccy.
Thought that if it was going to it would've done the other week when it seemed everywhere else did.
Reckon I'll be alright 'up top' by The Badger.
Yep, That's the one. Still raining heavy and going out to the pick up house in a minute, along with the brollies.
Got an 'after prom party' at someones house ,in a marquee on their lawn afterwards .That's going to be a bit of a mud bath afterwards after they've all been traipsing over it .
Is it not time we Brits dumped the Yankee Hollywood Prom and did something of our owna llittle more original ?
Underwater Morris Dancing perhaps?
But not heard much positive said about the place of late
The Oak on the other hand ...
Our school always had a prom - nothing american influenced about it at all.
That's an awesome picture - although I'm guessing very carefully shot judging by the angle. I'm too lazy to pop 5 secs down to road to see what it's like now...
I think the refernce comes from the fact that virtually ever school has one now, and if your school had an event, where did the inspiration for the 'Prom' name come from? We used to have a leavers do for 6h formers, (though other years used to come!) but it was called The Leavers Do/Party/Disco/P*ss UP/Fight/Violence,random vandolism event! The re-pranding of this phenominum seems to have escalated into:- A fashion show/transport/makeup, contest that mimics the worst side of the pond, costs lots of money, puts pressure on teenagers and their parents/guardians, and seems to be inspired ny trash TV that has invaded our screens! Yep I am unashamedly nostalgic for Punk, when you were judged on an item of clothing that cost next to nothning, and looked like you had got it off a a skip, or your dads wardrobe! Teens didn't seem so concerned with how much everything cost, and an expensive image, designers, sretch limo, makeup, body image, ect (Oh get some sleep you sad old kit! People want to have FUN, not dwell on yesteryear!Save us from americanisation!
Duck Race Off
Too much water
No, to the best of my knowledge my school always called their 6th form leavers party a prom...
Ours were always called a Leavers do,disco.p*ss up etc. no-one got dressed up in posh frocks,tho some girls wore as little as possible.Jeans n a tshirt were main clobber,and it were held in the main school hall,not some over priced posh place. A Prom's an american idea. I left school in 1980,no-one had the money splash around for owt fancy.
It always used to flood in Eccy at the bottom of Badgers Croft on the Stone Road.
Still does - me sister lives there.
Good God man, I didn't say I'd actually be going in the place !
But The Oak on the other hand, would be worth getting wet feet for.
Flood water on roads in Weston and Yarlet Bank this morning
Have a nice dayall
