  1. Apropos statues, the pulling down thereof, and the offence some people like to take (as mentioned in the joke thread) I would like to propose that every building associated with Thomas Forman, the printer, be razed to the ground and every plaque that has been erected in his honour be wrenched from the walls and thrown into the Trent. My grandmother was a dark-skinned lady. Her actual origins were never spoken of in her grandchildren’s presence and it was only when granddad let something slip that we realised that her parents had had difficulty making a living due to the “colour-bar

  2. I went to the bottle bank at Thurgarton village hall yesterday as we had quite an accumulation of empties. As my wife doesn't drink alcohol I was rather ashamed at the number of bottles that went into the bin. I drink no more than two glasses a night with my dinner but it's amazing how the bottles build up! About time I ordered another dozen.

  3. You are none of those things, young Trogg! Don't let anyone tell you you are. We all forget things. Surely, a good marriage doesn't hinge on remembering the date it took place! I'm not married but if I had been, it certainly wouldn't have lasted 53 years! 53 minutes....maybe!

  5. Oh dear Trogg! But don’t beat yourself up over this oversight ...... my husband never remembers our wedding anniversary. He still works overseas occasionally (when airlines are permitted to fly) and invariably he’ll be away on significant dates, such as our birthdays and wedding anniversary but it doesn’t bother me at all, it’s not a big deal for us ........ But everybody’s different.

  10. Crikey ..... Manchester United’s youngster Marcus Rashford has had more of a influence on government policy in the last 48 hours, than Jeremy Corbyn had in his 5 years as Labour leader!

  12. There is compelling evidence that Francis Lovel survived the battle, but died of his wounds shortly after and is buried in All Hallows Church, Gedling. http://www.allhallowsgedling.co.uk/francis-lovel.html This is only a taster of the research carried out by Ted White, one of the Friends of All Hallows. Me and the missus attended one of Ted’s talks in Lambley Church back when the world was normal, and it proved to be extremely interesting. If Lovel is indeed buried in All Hallows then his burial slab is to the right of the altar as you face it. A member of the Richard III Society ac
