Haha, it's actually quite a nice place to be honest although like every town (population of Skem is just shot of 39K) it has some rough spots. The original Old Skem was a mining town and in the late sixties developers started building a new town and created lots of jobs with an industrial boom. Lots of new factories employed many residents who moved from places like Kirkby. The Co-operative Bank opened a major office building in the late 70's and as far as I know it's still the biggest employer in the town. I worked for them for 36 years before taking early retirement in 2016.
I am originally from Liverpool but moved in when I was 10 in 1971. I love it and would never go back to Liverpool even if I won the lottery.
