That joke was lost on You Yorkies. Pity there aren't many South Lancs and Gtr Manchester members, they would have got it!!! Wiganers are known as "Pie-Eaters" to everyone in surrounding towns!!

My uncle used to work at Priestmans building the excavators in the 60's. They used to hold the odd open day on a Saturday and he used to take my brother and I to have a look round, I remember being facinated by the machinary because everything was so big. He also made us a sledge while he worked there and it had the Priestmans Tiger decal on, its been a lot of years since I saw that logo

Shame you had not managed to keep hold of your sledge. It would have had some kind of value these days.
