Hi all - it would be great to hear your memories of spud picking week in Octobers of the past. Wink In the 60's we lived in Keresley End and would go potato picking around Corley. I can remember assembling around the woods/Fivefield Road and being taken off in a truck - we could have been taken anywhere but always ended up in a field of potatoes! Big grin When I was 11 I was learning to play the recorder and desperately wanted one of my own. I worked solidly the whole week and earned the 13 shillings and sixpence needed for the really good one I wanted. My friend Rachel and I then went into town after school the following Monday to buy it - what a memory! Happy

Hi Anne, and I bet you shared a few giggles whilst doing the spud picking. Mentioning Fivefield Road brought back some memories of my hubby's rellies, the Bucks, they lived in Fivefield Road and it was a nice walk to their place when visiting. Going back to the spud picking. There used to be some queer shaped ones dug up on our allotment years ago, not like today all spit and polished!!!!! Wave

Hi Dreamtime! Yes, we had a good giggle and worked hard! Fivefield Road is still beautiful, I hope that the builders never get hold of it. I have so many memories of it! I think I'll start a new thread! Wave
