    roller disco carlton forum, bingham leisure centre

    Hi, I used to marshal & help hand out the sk8's etc etc ... went all over the place in a big white van- also used to do Red hill leisure centre.. Was run by Kevin & Mark Brook's ( Mark was the one who was into Body Building), He unfortunately Died earlier this year, not very old. Unbeknown to me at the time but I actually met my future wife at the Carlton Disco.. The song "Walking on Sunshine" is now playing in my head------- Thanks

    Image Attach Test

    If image does not show please remove post , thanks seems to work, so can remove thanks
  5. Ok try this... Click into the very top left corner of the spread sheet ( to highlight all cells & rows) then double click directly on one of the lines between the rows on the very left ( between the numbers) this should adjust all the rows to the same size as long as there are no cells with txt wrapping set... Or you can Right click on a line between the rows on the very left , this will give you a menu that gives you the option to set the height manually for all rows... for a guide to how high you might want to make it - without highlighting all the cells just left click on a dividing line on the left, it will show you in pixels how high it already is... normally set to about 20pixels.... hope this helps.. Also as a tip you can do the same for setting the width of cells ..

  7. I thought I'd jump in with a post about Allen & Sollys & the people who worked there , I have set up a Facebook Group with a few photo's from the 50s -60s if anyone is interested or wants to post comment, or identify anyone.. Thanks Or just search Allen and Solly in Arnold Nottingham

    Boots Factory

    Yep, A lot of houses going to be built on the Boots site, More land sold off to the developers... just the start of it really,, Thane Road is going to run right round the back of the site - leading out on to the main road exit at Beeston end.. though Thane road is predictably not going to be able to take all the Vehicle traffic trying to cut through to Beeston from the flyover island that already gets congested when 3000 Boots employees try to leave work ,, but no one cares about that bit ... Also.. Sadly Boots is no longer Boots, tis just a name above the door of your local shop,, its now "Wallgreens" American through & through apparently... £100 million + has to be saved somehow,,,, so yes 700 job losses is just the start......

    Request for Images

    Hi, Your Spot on with the arrow, I used to work at Derry & Sons Printers - to the right of the arrow, they used to share an alley that went right to the back of the British Waterways Building on the Canal Side , I will have a look through my old photo's to see if theres anything of Challands amongst them. I remember calling out the RSPCA to help release loads of Pidgeons that had got in through the broken windows of the abandoned place & couldn't get out..

    Using Smileys

    Wow, I didn't know the site had an age restriction. I'd better watch my spelling & punctuation before the Grammar Police arrest me & throw the key away. Sticks & Stones may break my bones but an Emoticon will never offend me. (just my opinion, not sure about trying to influence the other 2400 members) ( Emoticon to be inserted here at a later date, when I've found one applicable)
