Coming down to the Green as a kid to watch the fireworks, was an adventure. We'd walk through town, past Lewis's department store on Argyle Street and ogle at the Christmas displays in the windows. Maybe get a bag of chips to heat up. Then head to the other side of the park past the people's palace. I am thinking maybe where the Football Centre is now? We'd have sparklers and i'm sure they used to have a big bonfire too. Maybe you know or remember and can let me know?
