    I visited Scarborough at Easter, it was lovely, we stayed at The Grand, right near the tram that takes people up and down the steep hill. I first met my (late) husband in Scarborough and it was the first time I'd been back since his passing.

    I visited Scarborough myself when the local bus company did Sunday daytrips in around August 1995, and the following week we went to Great Yarmouth. My late mother used to prefer East Coast towns rather than West Coast ones apparently.

    Scarborough is obviously not too far from Bridlington which I was considering going to last year because Cannon and Ball were doing a season at the local theatre.
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    Watched a very funny film the other week called "little voice" it was filmed in scarborough, the film starred Micheal (turn nothing down) caine who is seen in one scene leaving a pub which was renamed for the film but was once called The Leeds, the reason i mention it is because i once stayed there for a weekend....my claim to fame!

    Yep - "Scabby" is highly thought of among the locals, I hear!
    Time flies like the wind, fruit flies like bananas - go figure!

    My sister was in Scabby with her family recently, she was sat outside the teapot cafe which is right up at the fairground end having a brew, she described hearing a screech of tyres and then a bang, she looked round to see a young father and his toddler son lay in the road after being knocked down by a motorist who had hit a wet patch of road and lost control, she said it spoilt the rest of her holiday...she never did find out if the lad and his dad survived

    Thatís so very sad...

    About ten years ago we were in Bridlington one evening watching the youngsters diving / jumping in the sea off the harbour wall .. there must have been a hundred people watching them and then suddenly there were screams of horror .. some local teenager thought it was funny to push one of the watchers off the wall into the sea BUT he actually pushed the poor lad down onto the STONE steps !!

    Everyone stayed for ages as the ambulance guys worked on the lad on the steps .. I still donít know why they just didnít move him to the ambulance straight away .. I presume the lad must have survived as I saw that the culprit was charged with assault ..

    We havenít been back to Bridlington since

    Patients who have fallen from a height can't be moved straight away Incase of neck/spinal injuries, they have to be assessed, then the rescue has to be risk assessed.
    I've been out a few times with paramedics as I'm a junior doctor.☺
