  5. When it first opened it was called the Goose Fair, then changed it's name to the Sporting Chance (as did other various pubs around the country) As far as I can remember, that's the only 2 'official' names the pub had in it's short life. After the was only a matter of time....

    Out and about over the Bank Holiday weekend, me and Mrs Frank came across something we had not seen before on our walking travels. Out in mid Derbyshire Peak District, we saw quite a few examples of where people had hammered coins into fallen tree trunks or tree stumps? What is the significance of this? Any one seen it before? Money Tree comes to mind??
  12. Sure do.. Mick lived at No. 13, 3 doors away. He got glassed in the face at the pub on Maid Marion way. After that I vowed never to set foot in the place.
  13. I lived on Bradfield - opposite Withern Road,about 7 doors up from the Library, from '57 till I moved out from mams in '68. Went to Players infants, then juniors but finished off at William Crane Secondary School for Boys, bottom of Sherbourne Road till '67.

  22. Well done Zab. I thought that it may go for a little longer, but obviously, some of you are always out and about. Read all about it here.
  23. I took the picture about 3 weeks ago on a bright Sunday morning. Mrs Frank has perked up no end but she's insisting that the Nurse takes the stitches out - well, I did offer! Bruises turning a nice shade of purple and yellow. Took her out for a run in the motor today, we had a little run around Leicestershire, stopping off for a pot of tea at the Belvoir Brewery (beer for me), visiting some nice little villages on the way out and back. Stopped off and watched the parachuting at Langar airfield. Man it's been some years since I did that! First descent 01 August 1982 - still got the certificate.
  24. Back in the good old days when Horizon first opened, even us contractors used to get an allowance - 400/week if I remember correctly. That's on top of all them we used to smoke out of the reject bin as well :tongue:
