Does anyone else remember when the High St was pedestrianised, there was a street party or fete with stalls etc in the High Street?
What was the date?  I think it was around 1973-4.  I can only remember that it was in the evening - not sure if there was an opening ceremony or not - & there was a bouncy mattress like a boxing ring on which kids were playing a game of tag.  Each of us was given a sash to wear to show you'd paid to go on it.

Anyone have any photos or other memories?
