This photo was taken on 23rd June 1983

This photo was taken on 23rd June 1983 at the annual bonfire night at emerald (where the astro turf is now) It was a fantastic tradition and probably a great way for the parents to get rid of old furniture etc… There wasn’t a pallet or a tyre safe within a 10 mile radios!. The kids gathered for weeks on end, the planning was meticulous, everyone was given there area by the older ones  and once it started to be build there was nearly 24 hour watch in case the other area’s stole anything..
