  6. Dale Winton

    CF, I only posted what I'd read. Thank you for pointing out my error in not researching sufficiently ! I'm not really bothered where he was born actually ! RR, yes, I believe he was on Radio Trent at one time.

    I think the oil barges came from Torksey terminal, up Gainsborough way. The big terminal near Colwick was served by the railway only as far as I'm aware.
  9. Enjoying owt on the box lately ?

    Watched two programmes the other night, that are fantastic viewing. 'Britains Most Historic Town' with the immensely watchable Professor Alice Roberts, who constantly describes things in a totally understandable manner. Then 'Secret Agent Selection WW2'. This puts various civilians through the intense training course that the prospective agents went through in WW2. Again, compulsive viewing. Another programme I'm recording is 'Britains Biggest Warship', about the HMS Queen Elizabeth during its sea trials. Very occasionally, something interesting does come along .

    I too sadly cannot attend due to prior arrangements, but will be thinking of a good, kind and thoughtful man.
  12. Things you don't see anymore

    Just remembered now how we coloured the top of the top with different chalks, and when it spun, it was like a kaleidoscope. Brilliant !
  13. Things you don't see anymore

    Oh dear Lizzie, the mushroom top was a doddle, it was the carrot that I struggled with as it kept wobbling and falling over.
  14. Things you don't see anymore

    Rover tinned biscuit selection.
  15. Scenes which haven't changed so much.

    Except for the beautiful gate boarded up. Oh ! And where's all the students litter ?
