Just a list of ad hoc memories from the 60's, that we (me) used to get up to.
No1. Standing in Red Lion Square with our scooters, watching the world go by. (i.e.Girls.

No.5 Going pipe hunting, when the Welland was low, near the town bridge and finding old clay pipes.
No6. -My Dad taking me to get my hair cut at Mr Bells on East Street (before the late sixties). Didn't cut it between 1967 and 1970. No one did.
no7. Frequenting every pub in Stamford, especially "Millstone, Scotgate (with the cellar bar) White Swan, Drum and Monkey, Hurdler, Crown Hotel, (to watch Match of the Day) Albion Tavern, and all the rest really.
No 8. On Sundays at 10.30 flying up to the Tinwell Pubs to get an extra half an hour drinking at the Rutland pubs. (Why).
No.9 Catching Newts from the pond near Williamson Clift brickworks and keeping them the enamel sink in our back garden.

Any of these ring a bell.
