Why were you barred from the grapes Tom? lol
I'll take the 5th amendment on that one Jon :O)
I remember the Whitsun service held there in front of The Grapes, with Holy Trinity church,Joel Lane Methodists and Hyde Chapel who had the Tideswell Silver Prize Band. We had the joint sing and then all went our separate ways with our banners to sing at special places. We- Hyde Chapel went to Bowlacre House, then Pole Bank Hall then back to Sunday school for tea and currant buns.Sports on the top field in the afternoon and a dance at night.Happy days!
