Driffield poems

Post by nordi » Sat Mar 10, 2012 3:30 pm

Does anyone have the words to the poem abouty Driffield trip day?
I think it started
Each year we have trip day at Driffield
All't bairns go by train down to Brid
And a penny to spend for each kid.

I'd also like to know about one that started
Here we are at oor town end
Wi a shoulder o mutton and a crown to spend

I have a feeling that was something to do with children scrambling for pennies that were thrown from hot shovels into the street.

Here we are at ower toon end
A showlder o' mutton and a bob ta spend.

This was shouted by children on New Years morning in Driffield and the shopkeepers threw out pennies.

As for the trip day poem cant help you with that one.
