When dad left Belle Vue he went to work at NORWEB but he worked at weekends at Belle Vue and he use to work with a chap called Bob.  They use to call him Bob Ghosty, my dad use to help him when I was younger, if I was fed up I use to say to mi mum “can I go and stand with my dad”, yes.  And then anybody that came on their own I use to say “can I go and sit with them”, and they would ask and they would say “yes” and when we were going round I’d say “there not spiders you know, it’s pieces of string”, so I got barred on there.
