    The clock is much more recent than that, despite our "memories" of it being there for ever.

    I think it's this century, I did ask in the shop one day, but I can't remember the specific answer. It may have been a 'millennium thing'.


    Edit - I have found this message that I sent in November 2018, to someone who claimed that it had definitely been there for as long as she could remember, which could well be true, I suppose...

    "According to the lad in Peter Roger's shop, the Mill Street clock came around four years ago - no more than five."

    And this is the reason why it's there.

    Time stood still in the 70s so no need for clocks :)

    I'm moving back to the 70's in terms of haircuts. Haven't had one for 3 years. I figure when I took this pix a pint in the Nags probably cost about 50p .. or ten bob in old money. I have a deep suspicion that wont happen again. :heyhey:

    New Indian restaurant and takeaway is coming to Stafford town centre.

    It's taken over the old off the hook place.

    Another one?

    They might aswell call Stafford Town, Foodie town, you'll find a indian kebab chippy chinese pizza within walking around for 2 miniutes !

    Only thing I'd be happy about if the prices started coming down because of the competition, even just a little but they never do.

    Weird time to open too with Corona and it being summer.

    Can't understand why I think it's been there forever :?:

    Maybe it's because it just fits in with the environment right.

    I'd imagine living in a flat above any premises in MIll Street will have you drooling or locking windows! Mela Lounge, O-Kra and the take away further down!
    I'd think the Mela Lounge and O-Kra kitchens must be feet apart rather than counting in yards, even if one is under ground!

    Imotion gym when it reopens , will be now known as Elements.

    Speaking of gyms, Stafford is to be treated to a new gym, Fuse , although , I'm unsure where this is located , any ideas ?

    https://www.fuseactive.co.uk/

    Did that gym near the new McDonald's ever get off the ground ?

    That all looks exhausting, but I think @Gareth mentioned one of the units by the Odeon cinema had been picked up for fitness / leisure - maybe there?

    I know the guy behind Fuse; it's going to be on Silkmore Lane. Not sure if he's announced exactly where so I won't spoil the surprise, but it's not likely to flood!

    New McDonald’s as in Kingsmead or the one by PureGym? (Who can take a long walk off a short pier, as they cemented over the only other pool in Stafford)

    There has been a digital clock opposite Peter Rogers for many decades but it’s always been stuck on ten past four in the afternoon.
