    Visted aunts elsie and peggy at Stone just before Christmas. Chatted about Bernard and Betty for a while. Even though they don't go out any more they still knew about Betty's passing.

    Russ, Jenny & Daz Whitehouse at The Lamb on Broadeye
    Barry & Doreen Moore ran the Castle Tavern from late 80's into the 90's, then I think they went on to run Rose & Crown?
    The Hogans ran the Railway Inn for many a year.

    Used to be 'The Crossbow' and I used to work behind the bar in the 70's

    Mr Frank Cary(Or Major Cary as he preffered to be called :rolleyes:) and his wife were really horrible to work for. If I spilt a bit of froth over the top of the glass he would say "Maaam....that is half a new pence you have just lost me!" I used to dread it when a customer requested a guinness!!

    He sent me home once to change a brand new cardigan that my mum had just knitted me because he didn't like the look of it.

    Quite a few customers were ordered out of his 'Cocktail Lounge' because they weren't suitably attired.

    I remember her well. Don't know why the RAF lads were worried, it was sailors hats she donned behind the bar lol.

    From my vague memory Jackie Proudlock ran the Railway briefly in 96, after that a woman with her son & daughter ran it ( I think her sons name was John?) someone out there will correct me if I’m wrong…

    John Talbot, ex of the Plough, Browning Street and the Amasal Club, has passed on - funeral at the crematorium at 10:30 this coming Tuesday.

    All details as I have remembered from a conversation this morning, so it might be worth checking..
