Just watched the final episode of Skint and no matter what its motives might be for having chosen GY, I got a lump in my throat as it came to a close with a poignant statement

To the people here it will always be Great Grimsby because wherever you are there's no place like home....

Amen to that!

It was not as bad as I thought it would be,

Yes there was a few wasters but it did show how the fisherman were treated by the government,

Thought it deserved just a slight change to your comment Pete

I knew Stan. He was as hard as nails but a nice chap. Sad to see his demise on national television but i thought it was handled quite well.

Series was not as bad as i imagined it would be and was nice to see the youth leader John Ellis soldiering on. Her has been running that place for over 40 years with very little support.

Yes Stan seemed a nice bloke, I noticed in the paper yesterday that he had boxed and only lost once in 39 bouts, if that is true that is an excellent record, I use to box all over the country and know what it is like to be in that ring and to get that record he must of been very good.

He really seemed a nice man and salt of the earth character and someone who you would respect.

I thought the show was put across really well and enjoyed watching it.


Grimsby and proud!

This on both accounts. Shalom responsible for sorting out a lot of the kids around that area.


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

I agree Chris....I thought there was a lot more positivity from having had the cameras in the town than I was led to believe there would be when the news first broke that Skint would feature the East Marsh

I might be a soft touch but I couldn't help but feel some sympathy with even the most problematic of characters...there but for the grace of god etc and as mentioned it gave an insight in to the good work that goes largely unrecognised, such as the Shalom

And the final scenes really did bring it home...Grimsby might come across as grim to the rest of the country but it really does have something about it that means a lot to us

It's easy to knock something but reading some of the comments on social media, whilst some people poked fun and took some cheap shots at some of the characters, there was also a number out there who recognise that as we lost ships at sea, hardship followed on closely afterwards, but there's still plenty of spirit left in us Grimbarians

I thought the series was worlds apart from the last one in Scunthorpe. Portrayed the people and area in a much more positive way.

There is some good people in Grimsby and I am proud to come from Grimsby. My wife and I felt sorry for the Girl who had turned to prostitution and the others who had turned to drugs, they all had underlying emotional problems and just can't cope with life it seems. I am a parent myself and do my damned hardest for my children and give them a lot of loving and care but it seems these people on skint was neglected of this.there should be more help for these people.

I really enjoyed the ex fisherman ( can't remember his name) he was a right character.


Grimsby and proud!
