STEVE CANAVAN: It was a lot of rattle over just a little roll

Have your say

I had a funny ‘deja vu’ feeling at the Kings Theatre in Southsea the other evening.

I was chatting with a patron about her experience on stage as a child when suddenly I was transported back to the age of nine. on stage with Chipper the News hound having won a competition.

As a youngster I was an enthusiastic member of the Chipper Club, writing stories and poems and participating in Southsea Show on the common, entering my rabbits in the Chipper pet show.

We won a few prizes, but I always managed to return home with more animals than I went with – much to the dismay of my mother.

I think it’s delightful that Chipper is still going strong and Southsea Show is making a return this summer.
