Easter Monday at the Fair

We would borrow ropes from the girls at Haggies.

Easter Monday in the Burn Closes at Wallsend was always a big day.  People would come and picnic and the place would be packed from end to end with families.  We would borrow ropes from the girls at Haggies and play skipping games, with lots of people all joining in at once.
