My Hometown is Northampton, I was born and bred here, there are about 190,000 inhabitants.
In Years gone by we used to be a Town famous for shoe making, there were so many Shoe Factorys and the majority of Town people were emplyed in the industry. Nowadays they are few and far between with only a couple remaining one being Church, they make shoes for the James Bond Films and have just fitted for the Great Britain Olympic Team. The only other main factory is called Trickers, and was used as the set of the Film "Kinky Boots".
We have also raised quite a few celebritys now, including
|Comedian Alan Carr|
|We even had - "ALION Carr"|
|The newest Doctor Who, Matt Smith|
|Radio 1 DJ - Jo Whiley|
And now we have a new Star:
|Pudsey the Dancing dog!|
Pudsey is into the Final of Britains got Talent (A show to find an Act to perform for the Queen at the Annual Royal Variety Show) he is so cute.
Here is a video of him busting a move!
As much as I moan about it I actually love my Hometown,
How do you feel about your Hometown? Do you still live there?
