Re: Giraffes gunned down for fun!!

Utterly disgusting, but typical of the american "culture" if thats what you call it,no wonder they are hated all over the world.
How could any one do this to such beautiful animals. If they were attacked by a shark while swimming it would be poetic justice!

I havn't posted for quite a while now but when I read this post I just had to put 2 pennyworth in, as these people are rip off merchants, and after reading some of the comments on the link I would strongly urge that you keep well away from them. There are opportunities out there albeit difficult to ...

Re: DEAN ROAD (the deans end)

The Crater as we all knew it ( and it's still called that today) was indeed where a land mine dropped during the last war I have some photos of the actual crater left by the mine; all of the windows were blown out, and a lot of the roof slates were blown off, none of the houses escaped damage. I don...

Re: DEAN ROAD (the deans end)

It has been great just to read the memories of those of you who lived around there. I Would like to thank "JEFF" in particular for putting u...

Re: coach fares for pensioners and disabled

May I make it clear that i do not mean the bus passes for old people; it is the coaches between cities. I.E. Newcastle to London and the like, although they have moved the ages to qualify for a bus pass to when you qualify for pension credit. A friend of mine now has to wait until he is sixty one an...

I have just learned that the government is now going to stop subsidised 50% fares for the disabled and old people. I wonder what they will stop next .

Re: Harpers Buildings

The little bridge was known as "Pulley Bank", I used to take my dads horse to get shoes on at the blacksmith just over the bridge from the baths. Alfred Watson was the name of the firm. That would be in the fifties

Re: Help needed to settle and argument

The Riverside pub was definetly the German seamans mission, I can remember it well. It was as you correctly say, Bilko's Bar for a time, I also seem to remember an article in the Gazette about it as Bilko's bar. Although I am not 100% certian I think it was also the Legion for a while. Happy days!

Re: was The Eureka Pub a listed building

I have just driven past the EUREKA at 4.30pm today and was sad to see that the old pub is no more than a pile of rubble. I cannot see why they had to destroy such a nice building, i know they are going to build badly needed houses on the whole area but when you look at the Euk and the rest of Freder...

The Lord Clyde pub

Does anyone know if the lord clyde has closed down or not, as I have passed a number of times on the bus and every time it seems to be deserted? It used to be a canny pub a few years ago.
