  2. I'm guessing you might be Mr Flannagan? Yes mate I'm well and enjoying retirement, two years 1st April. Might give that a try be nice to catch up with a few people Tony Wild for instance. How you doing?

  4. Hi Just seen this. Frankie Lemons died many years ago (30+). I'm trying to find his brother Ian if you have any information
  5. Thanks for the picture SteveHB didn't realise at first that it was interactive.It bought back many memories of where I used to live (a tower block now a house),and the park keepers hut where we painted a cricket wicket and the recreation ground where we had 20+ aside footy matches on a Sunday until beer took over and last not least my old classroom.
  6. that looks so different,it used to be surrounded by high rise flats, shops and maisonettes.
  7. I went to Pye bank school and am pretty sure that it has a date carving which says "School Board then a date (Can't remember what it was) that part of Andover Street was always known as School Board Hill.
  8. Remember one Xmas about 25 years ago going into this pub at lunch time.Landlord kicked us out about 5 so he could get something to eat and a tidy up we were back in drinking at around 5:45. can't remember what time that night we left What a session!!!!!!!!!
  9. I got one of those for my 21st birthday lambswool it was. was looking at it in my wardrobe yesterday extremely moth eaten but still a keeper.
  10. My abiding memory of Bob is him leaving for Liverpool and if IIRC he never played a first team game for them. A waste of a good keeper.
  11. Hi Brian, Good to know you're still in business. Used to love going to your shop,climbing up the ladder to try on the latest tweed oxford bags or to get a Ben Sherman shirt,made all the better because one day I told you I worked for the N.H.S. and from that day on you gave me a 10% discount. Happy days, strange fashions (Tweed oxford bags I ask you).
  12. Saw many concerts at the City hall. Sometimes sued to go beacause we were bored and had nothing better to do. (It was easier in the days of tickets costing 70p). Interested to read about the organ being worth around a million as I seem to remember Greg Lake during a concert attacking it with what looked like knives before being stopped by someone.
  13. Thank you
  14. remember seeing the police doing 3rd spot with two other bands (who I can never remember,headline band did the single off shore banking business the other I think were the comsat angels) in about '79.Also remember seeing Eddie and the hot rods who were so loud I couldn't hear properly for about 2 days after.
  15. anybody remember the little cobblers shop on Lady's bridge opposite the Brewer used to make wooden clogs for the factory workers.
