St Annes dunes and Blackpool
featured in an episode of Prey
Coronation Street actors
were on set on St Annes beach,
promenade, and Fairhaven Lake
Tim Burton filmed
“Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children”

The Killers music video “Here with Me” shows Blackpool at its finest (A wonderful video)
Unusual happenings on the beach today. Better sit a while and check it out.
Some passers-by didn’t notice, others were interested and stopped:
“What’s going on?”
“Must be a hen party?”
“Are they drunk?”
The huddle removed parkas and coats that had been protecting them from a keen sea breeze to reveal brightly coloured outfits and lots of exposed flesh.
“Not got many clothes on – must be from Newcastle,” commented one passer by.

It’s a wrap
Chatting to one of the production team, they are in St Annes filming a music short, “Made in the 80s”, and moving on to Blackpool tomorrow. Might just have to wander up there and check them out!
She was sitting in British Heart Foundation’s shop window in St Annes, modelling a wig. I didn’t want the wig. She wasn’t for sale. After a bit of friendly banter, the kindly shop assistant let me have her. For £1.50. A bargain!
I tucked her under my arm and hurried home, with an earworm.
He’s a germ free adolescent
Cleanliness is her obsession
Cleans her teeth ten times a day
Scrub away, scrub away, scrub away
The SR way …
That’s when she became Polly Styrene
with apologies to the late Poly Styrene of X-Ray Spex
(Germ Free Adolescence
is listed as one of those albums
you must hear before you die)
