How many years have you been working your fair's noo Merv? Seems like a long time..

I first started with a darts stall in 1982, then a ball stall. Later came swing boats, another two games stalls then a set of chairs (roundabout). After that a set of lift up jets (1986,) then dodgems (1987), and bouncy castles. Owing to health and spiralling costs I sold up in 1994. My son carried on with stalls and castles, doing a little charity work until 2007. No fifty pences jingling in pockets, the taxman and accountant had the best deal!
