It could be a Church Collection Box. Any writing on the silver shield.

Hi Michael,


I have moved this post to its own thread as I think it would be best suited thus. A photograph or a description seems to be the way forward on this.

Hello. I moved to lapley grove in 1981 I was seven at the time. I moved into a maisonette and across the grove were a low level block of flats. Does Lapley grove still exist? I cannot find it on google maps. I remember playing fields at the back of the grove and going shopping in the village. I went to Ridpool school. I was only in lea village about a year and then moved to Bordesley green. I remember some of the kids but non of the surnames. I am scrolling through the forums hoping to make a connection. ::)

For reasons only known to the designer The Reliant Robin's front wheel is different to the rear, (different rim off-set) this has far reaching conseqences, not least of which is: you need 2 spares, but where do you put them in a vehicle that has hardly got room for one? :-\
The answer today, of course, would have been to supply no spare, just an aerosol puncture repair kit.
Peg.

and the other thing   was a row of world war two aircraft  from one end of the park to the other end plus barrage balloons
