I have to admit that I thought it was filmed in 1979, but will take your word for it. Were you there when it was filmed? Jimmy Tarbuck hosted it and my claim to fame was that I spoke to him at the end of the show to tell him about the train that Father Christmas had just given me. Mike Harding was also in it, as was some bloke with puppets, whose name currently escapes me (even though I do have the show on dvd).
Happy times!

You have it on dvd!?! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE could you contact me and send me a copy?  Yorkshire tv demanded TWO HUNDRED quid to provide me with a copy!!!  I remember seeing myself on it, and being so excited (I was only five haha).  I'm more than happy to pay postage etc, and provide my email address etc....

Yeah, it was filmed live in 1978, then repeated on tv the next year.

Here are a few memories I have.... hopefully some people might reply and confirm I'm not imagining them haha......

A large red wooden airplane on the grass next to the hall?
Bonfires in the wood at the back?
A holiday to Robin Hoods Bay (I wasn't allowed to ride the horses, too young - and had to sit with 'Aunty' Freda and watch the others :-(   )
Walking along the back path to Otley Road to the shop near the path...usually for sweets lol.

Going to see 'Herbie Goes Bananas' and 'Empire Strikes Back' when they were first released...

Mr Young, the tall and scary Headmaster of Rossett Acre Primary School

Having Fetes on the front 'lawn'

Does anyone remember attending one of my birthday parties?  It was a 'tramp' themed party - and we ate on blankets on the floor haha

Ooh, watching 'Monkey Magic' on a Saturday afternoon....oh, and Dallas of course lol

By the way...if anyone has any photos contemporary to my time in Fairfield, I'd love to see them - I was there from 1974 - 1983

Hi Jimmy,
                           If you  look at the pictures on the right under 'recently online'   you will see a green dot by those actually on line at that time . It  looks as though Helen has not logged in for a while.

Hi Matthew, yes I remember the witches hat, we had hours of fun on it. If I remember right it would spin round and you could get it to bounce into the middle and rebound off the centre post  . Ahhh good times eh.

Loved it, dellinz.  AND that weird thing that was like a roundabout, with swings hanging from it and facing the middle.  Two people used to hang onto the middle, and spin it round - not good for a four year old me, flying off it and breaking my arm/teeth and leaving me with a small scar on my left cheek as a memento lol.
