Tudor Crisps

Recommended Posts

Amazing what you think about when clearing the attic.

I think a Newcastle footballer advertised them long before Gary Linaker and Walkers crisps.

I wonder what this generation will invent or make popular.

One questions 'Are Gregg's still selling their version of Cornish Pasties'

This week in Birmingham they claimed they had stopped production.

I guess I should have put this in a different section but 'Tudor' crisps , I could argue, are history.

Hopefully not so for Gregg's Pasties.

The voice over at the end of ads 2, 3 & 4 is almost certainly James Bolam, so the first ad looks like it's the odd one out.

 

The central motorway wasn't renumbered from A1(M) to A6127 until 1977, so that sort of sets a backstop date on those last three.  I notice the guy who uploaded them isn't at all sure as to the dates.

Oops nearly forgot.

Surely John Tudor was Newcastle Malcolm.

You are remembering the opposition .

Delighted to say I found a Gregg's with what used to be called The Cornish Pasty.

Why do people feel the need to tell lies.

Maybe Birmingham is 'off' Gregg's of Gosforth's hit list for old fashioned pasties.

From The history of the Cornish Pasty:

 

" since 2011 the European Union's rules for what constitutes a true Cornish pasty have been much more restrictive: to be a cornish pasty you must have potato, swede, onion and beef wth the filling containing at least 25 percent vegetables and at least 12.5 percent meat. Most importantly,  the pasty must be made in Cornwall".

 

I wonder how things stand with our very own Bedlington Terrier. How long Before the EU rules state that it must be concieved in Bedlington in order to use the name?

I think Lavery and Northumberland County Council have plans to change its name to Ashington Terrier and provide funding to pay for the change.

    • 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.”
