Carr Mill day trippers got more than they bargained for whilst visiting a St Helens beauty spot. The Carr Mill Glee club were on an organised visit to The Dream in Sutton Manor. The sunken statue has met with great critical acclaim and generated over £4.22 into the local economy since being lowered into position the other year. Known locally as “Babbysyed” the giant submerged child only has its head showing above ground.
Bill Sild Glee Club trip organiser “I’ve been gagging to visit The Dream for years, it took us 14 hours travelling on the number 24 bus and then a further 15 minutes to climb up to the Face, to be honest I wasn’t sure what to expect but what happened next was simply astounding”.
Bill went on to explain that almost the whole bus party witnessed what “favvered” a super wide futuristic road with traffic zooming each way at high speeds. “Some of us just didn’t know what to do, this…this…thing, this…EM62, it was way bigger than the East Lancs and beyond it was a field bigger than Sherdley Park! “Some of us started feeling faint next thing I knew I was outside a chippy being treated for Shit with a Twist.”
Bill and all his intrepid travellers managed to make it back down from the peak and were later treated for shock, dehydration and a range of Victorian ailments outside Wongies on Forest Road.
Ste Helens who works for St Helens Tourism and Terrorism commented that there isn’t anything past the Dream and advised that people stay away from the edges of town. “There is an increased risk of illness near the edges of town, the Glee Club were very lucky to survive”
Bill has made a full recovery and is planning his next expedition to the Bonk in Sutton. He has asked any sponsors to contact SHCN to help with logistics and the fare on the No22.
