    I knew a lad called Stan who had the nickname Stash, he was in to body building and weight lifting, he went to work for the old Newcastle Breweries and used to move hogs-heads and barrels like they were made of cotton wool. He ended up in later life living in Morpeth and was well known, people often refered to him as the gentle giant as he was a right canny lad . I have not seen him around lately so hope he is still going.

    Thats Sugar far left and a think the lad with the beard was called Danny. I did not supp in the Folly for the last couple of years before it closed but it was around 1991,no one knew Jimmy and Betty were moving out the flat they just vanished on day ( they had a cottage at Wooler maybe they went to it ) It stood empty and boarded for a short while not long, then it went on fire, Tha was a lot of gossip controversy over the fire and I remember tales/ gossip from folk saying of the wrecking crew demolished it at the crack of dawn so no one would be around to stop them as they had no correct permission, but who knows the truth. Eddie may be able to shed some light on those tales

    They only tried the meals for mevies a couple of weeks it interfered with Betty Licensed Vitulers garvorting, and of course she wasint that keen on graft. The meals was served in that little back room ya mentioned. Some of the pictures of the pub dont ring a bell with me asweel a cant remember seeing a plain empty wall in the Folly they was all covered in Jimmys nic nacs (nay pun intended ) .

    I remember somebody hung up a turnip lantern and it hung for years, it shrank and looked like some wizened faced owld Man with naa teeth. And who could forget the record company advert hinging on the cellar door for the company's latest 78 record of Goodbye Dolly Grey, talk aboot stuck in a time warp, the jack and Jill was so owld it made the one in Arkwrights shop look high tech.

    That Brian Hedley him and his wife I think she was called Carole were regulars , along with John Brown, Colin, Sugar, Micky Jolly, John Packard, Alfie, Tommy the pig farmer, and so many more that I cant bring to mind at this minute. Old Reg is sitting in front of the famous portrait of Jimmy that Betty would take down when they fell out It was one hell of a place well patronised it should never have closed ,

    Aye thay was called Britannia tables, popular in pubs years ago but the things weighed a tun, cleaners would not be allowed to move em these days Can ya remember if you wanted to have a Tom Tit you had to ask for the sit doon lavvy key and the toilet roll from behind the bar, the key was attached with a bit of string to a great big lump of wood so no one would put it int pocket or nick it, I think most folk would nip tha cheecks till thay got home, but if the tortoises heed was popping oot then ya had na choice
