You can call me Taffy, even though I'm from Hull and living in Wales

TBH I was never called a "taffy".... simply 'Taff' whilst I was in London ;-)

I always say to people i meet " Allright Taff". It's regarded as a friendly gesture.
During the Miners summer holidays,just about everyone went to Porthcawl for a weeks holiday,and you would more than likely meet someone you work with,with the expression "Hya Butt". Porthcawl was known as "Hya Butt Bay"
It was so popular,that every valley had a different 2 weeks,so they could accommodate everyone.
