Flash of inspiration!
Perhaps it's the word 'pole' that Amazon is referring to (as in 'dancing').

Oooooooh Errrrrrrrr Mrs!!!!!!
I googled L??G L??S Manchester and it came up with 'Long Legs' Manchester.
I can see why Amazon wouldn't be allowed to go there (or would want to for that matter!!)
Hope I have won you a tenner for the Skate Park Mark.

Ooo Errrr indeed! Blimey! I hope that's it but I don't see the connection or how I mentioned it in one of my posts  ???

Shouldn't that be poling? If you mention Polling Duke Fame will hijack the thread to help us understand world politics.

Perhaps with some more guesses it could be called "50 Things you can do with an old Roach Pole!"

PS - has anyone figured Amazon's puzzle so I can claim a fiver?
Clue it's in Manchester . And being mentioned all the time ..it's now a tenner . For skate park ..

There's going to be a reboot of "Fly Fishing, by J.R. Hartley" called "Roach Polling by M. Whittaker"

You are going to form a 'Limbo dance club' and the pole is to Limbo under??

Not with my glass back I'm afraid  :'(

My theory: it will be used to hang something from as a target for skaters to touch in a "how high can you jump" competition.

A great idea Howard but it's nowhere near as much fun as that sounds  ::)

Pair of trainers from a telephone line? That's no tree or kite!  ;D

Closer but no trainers or telephone line involved ;)

I'm guessing it is to get the kite down from the tree near the playground (if it is still up there, haven't been there for a couple of weeks) or something similar???

Close, apart from there being no tree or kite involved  :D

With many thanks to Marveld, one of our regular visitors, I now have the perfect tool for the job with the donation of an ancient bamboo roach pole that hasn't seen the light of day for 25 years!

The big question now is should I put Amazon out of his misery and tell him what I need it for, or should I let him stew for a bit?
