How many of these ring a bell with you?
1. Dave Marshall did your school disco
You know you’re from Scarborough if you went to a school disco and Dave Marshall was there, teaching you the dance moves to Black Lace’s Superman and Bridge Over Troubled Water.
2. Seaside Danny Wilde
If you know the correct response when someone shouts ‘Seaside’ is ‘Danny Wilde, say seaside Danny Wilde’ then congratulations, you’re from Scarborough.
3. Percy Parrots
If you have a hazy childhood memory of running round the Percy Parrot soft play in Olympia Leisure in a sugar induced frenzy, or indeed of watching your child do so, then you’re probably a Scarborough native.
4. Skipping Day
You know you’re from Scarborough if you think having the afternoon off school on Pancake Day to go skipping on the beach is a completely normal thing to do.
