Things you only know if you're from Grimsby
17 February 2003
It's a bit out of the way, there's not a lot to do there, and it's not exactly a vibrant patchwork of multiculturalism. But hey, there are worse places to be (I once spent the night in Northampton), and Grimsby has a culture, humour and language all its own. The 'Things you only know if you're from Grimsby' series is my jaded and cynically tongue-in-cheek but, I hope, moderately affectionate attempt at recording, if not celebrating, some of it.
If you have any comments or suggestions about the series then please let us have them using the Cod Almighty feedback page. Thanks for reading.
