IT'S back to the glorious 80s, when the Pet Shop Boys were ruling the roost...just like they are now...for another Days of the Old School Yard.
And it was a case of East End boys and East End girls - doing the Lambeth Walk in Plaistow.
Maybe it's because they were Londoners that the 25th Newham West Scout Group put on such a cheering Reminisce show at the Guinness Trust Home in Plaistow Road for the OAPs there.
The show, performed by 30 Cubs and Scouts, consisted of sketches, plays and songs.
The highlight was a grand finale featuring a foot-storming, hand clapping medley of golden oldie Cockney classics which would have put Me and My Girl to shame.
The lads made their own props and costumes for the show, which was also attended by the then Mayor and Mayoress of Newham, Cllr. and Mrs Tom Nolan.
