    Hi, I am Jean and Arthur's great neice and spent time with them in Stafford 1996 just before Auntie Jean passed away. I was looking for inforamtion on 'young' Arthur which lead me to this site. Really shocked and saddened to have found this message, can you tell me if this is Joise's husband Arthur who passed away in 2010. Much appreciated.

    Thanks so much for your quick reply. I live in NZ, came home in 1998 and had lost touch with the Candlin's after Auntie Jean died.
    I would love to catch up with Josie or her daughter Nicki, are you in contact with them at all? If so is it secure to give you my email address in this forum to pass on to them?

    Underneath the picture of the rose, 'your name' and 'New Member' ( over < there to the left) you'll see a shaded box saying 'Private Message' - put your cursor over that and it will underline itself.

    A 'Private Message' is just that - private...

    My mum worked for Sid and Flo Askey at The Crown in the 70's, we left Stafford and then returned, my Dad became the landlord of The Falcon before Len Proudlock (1st time).

    My Dad had a few Jags over the years - can't recall what he was driving when we were at the Falcon, he had an e-type when we lived in Horsehay I know

    Last saw Brian in The Lamb about 3 or 4 years ago. Considering he'd been ill, he looked younger than when he retired from The Sun.

    From 1974 to 1976 I lived nearby in Newquay Avenue.
    Frank Carey and his beer were two reasons why I didn't use the Crossbow.

    I last saw Brian Deakin about ten years ago working for the council counting passing cars for a traffic census.

    I didn't properly know the Baskervilles but well remember Fred and Freda Leese who kept the Shrewsbury arms until 1978.

    I lived in Porlock Avenue from 74 to 78 - I remember going in once, but I don't even remember getting as far as having a beer to assess...
