It's the p's and the d's that separate the sheep from the goats! :)

There once was a 1d bar of chocolate, though by my day it was rather tiny.

Mind you a 6d (2.5p) bar of Cadbury's Fruit & Nut from Watsons Newsagents lasted several pages of The Eagle comic on the United bus. Sheer quality - except the United bus! :D

I believe "hog's eye" is the phrase that pays.

so did anyone ever see the hogs eye tab smoker? or was he an urban myth like those that rumoured that you could freely buy and/or take drugs on the premises or that if you went over to 'the blyth side' you might die...

the one vivid memory i have of the domino was standing near the front door, on the uppermost landing (where the tables where). it happened the same every time, a loud shout, a breakage of glass then the 'mexican wave' of bodies all piling in for a piece of the action.

was a great viewpoint, never did find out if anyone got badly hurt.

the wave nearly always started at the right hand bar at the bottom of the 'chill-out room' staircase, moved accross the middle landing where the pillars were, back again, then down onto the dancefloor.

ahhhh, the good old days!

And Denzel been captured by big Kim :blink:

Ah! yes, I remember Kim, a classy lady well suited to Denzel, and also the manager who left one of the young staff 'up the duff'. If her mother finds out the guy will be castrated :D

Well don't tell her to come out this Friday night; though no doubt Thelma and Mrs Hair will 'miraculously' bump into us during the course of the evening.

IFCIT! :D

Our very own version of the shopkeeper in "Mr Benn" whose appearance from nowhere was an infallible sign that today's adventure was over.

    • A big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”
