Who was the tight git that gave you 38p...?
It was all just chucked into a pot and counted at the end. When I think about it some people got away with exploiting child labour. I remember spending most of the day clearing some blokes garden and he gave me a quid!

I do just about remember those Commando comics. I too remember looking forward to going to the newsagents in the 80's for the Beano / Dandy (sure there was another one I used to get - Beezer? Is that one?) anyway, also Shoot magazine and then NME and Melody Maker in the mid to later 80's. Happy days.
Used to get the Beano delivered weekly until my dad flipped when the price went up from 2p to 3p and cancelled our order 😶

Seagulls around the city centre.
With all of the takeaways shut the easy pickings from lazy gits who can’t be bothered to use a bin have all dried up.

I have never seen Exeter as tidy.The same in Plymouth too,when I went down the equivalent of Sidwell St in the grey city,Cornwall St.
