The sad news today was that HMV was going into administration with their trademark of the dog and the gramophone being much loved for generations. To mark the occasion Donna brought in some old HMV 78's and the wind up gramophone. Unfortunately we haven't got one with a trumpet on but John did the honours winding it up. To start with it wasn't tuneful at all (sorry Ellen) but a change of needle helped a lot.
Donna also brought in a sledge as the snow has arrived. Mary could remember being pulled along the street on a sledge and all the other kids piling on. The cold weather also brought back memories of burst pipes and snowmen. Renee had a bobble hat which she tied a scarf around to keep it on.
