A union driver that bounces barn to barn, never landing a spot on the list, because no employer wants to add them to the list. They just use and abuse them when busy then just throw them out like a rubber.
The no.6 man asked the shoppie, “hey Jim, where’s scumbaggio?”

Jim replied: “fuck do I know, he ain’t on the list, he’s a professional shaper, last year he had 47 w2’s

In Hipperholme, Halifax. Situated on the A58 road, opposite Hipperholme Grammar.

Infamous for the lack of equiptment, deficiency of money invested and the owner, DIRTY LIN.

If you ever previously went to this lame excuse for a gym, i feel sorry for you.

If you have ever encountered Dirty Lin, possibly the most horrible person you will encounter, i feel sorry for you.

The best piece of news from this sh*t hole, was the closement of it last November.

The building still stands to this day. And although dirty Lin is long gone, the memories will haunt those who have experienced.
Covo bout The former shaper's "gym"

Matt: "Yeah, went for two weeks, still gives me nightmares!".
