  2. It's at the very top end of the front street, a few doors up from Watson's newsagent/post office. It looks to have been ready for a while; I've heard tales that it has been put on hold due to illness of someone involved. I really hope it goes ahead, as I believe this will be a roaring success.

  18. Glad you like them! Don't forget to clean and hone a little after every use, particularly if you are using them on pine trees. The resin plays havoc with the sharpness. Bit of turps or an alcohol hand wipe gets rid of it nicely so that you don't get a build up. The latter is easy to have with you in your first aid kit - along with the elastoplasts.
  19. Could have been Sweden at Christmas! Thanks Eggy! Actually, I think I recognise the lower picture. I knew the name was familiar. I think he was a friend of my late brother so his name has probably been heard a few times in my younger days - talking 50s here.
  20. It was wonderful help - Its half term here so used the opportunity to lay down 8 tonne of gravel in a grotto we use for the camp fires. (we are in an ex convent) the kids loved doing it, especially with the quads and trailers whizzing about! Then we took the opportunity to sort some wood out for the fires - there was only one casualty - er a leader who wondered how sharp these new axes were - I think I might have to revisit the whole safety thing !!!!! But after an hour or so of use the hatchets were still as sharp as they started out - lovely bit of Swedish steel.
  21. Way back in the 60's and 70's a couple of men lived in a cottage on the river bank deep into the grounds of Hartford Hall and I believe they were brothers. Possibly ex staff from the 'old hall?' They were getting on and had been there many years. the cottage had no mains facilities and they had to 'barrow' coal from the hall down through the woods as well as anything else they needed. I have no idea who they were or what happened to them.
  22. Don't think so CL - I would say that's his son at the Market Place club, 1974. For eating & drinking of various luxury goods, around 1956, at The Howard Arms the then Guiness World Record holder is said to have been 47. But I could be totally wrong.
  23. Dredging through what is left of my memory - I recall being told that in one of the competitions there was a full cooked pigs head as a table centre piece - complete with apple in the mouth etc. (it may have been in France) and Joe munched through his allotted amount of pies, sausages or whatever the competition was and finished well head of the others - the tale goes that he then reached for the pigs head.... with the immediate effect of the other competitor/competitors - passing out - throwing up or just walking away....
  24. MI My mate trevor Finnigan good player went on to play for blackpool among others stu green
  25. Happy Birthday mercuryg . Sorry I am a little late.
