Click'em brews up tea time tickets
RUTH Ellis, of Thirkleby Crescent, Grimsby, got in touch after seeing a photograph of the Click'em Inn at Swinhope in our Then And Now feature.
Ruth told us: "In the late 1940s the Click'em was one of the many places in the north of Lincolnshire where we ramblers would go to eat our packed lunches, along with pre-arranged cups of tea. The room to the left of the front door is where we ate.
"The licensee (and maybe the owner) was Miss Mumby. She had a large metal teapot which she would bring to us with the tea already made, accompanied by a kettle of boiling water for topping up.
"On one occasion while "topping up" we were amazed to see a handful of raffle tickets rise to the surface. It didn't put us off our "seconds" though and we suffered no after effects.
