  1. I also got 'Look and Learn', or rather my mother made me get it to go with my favourite 'The Victor'. Look and Learn was very worthy but I did read it, though mainly because of a beautiful and colourful comic strip in it called 'The Trigan Empire'.
  2. I walked down Arnold Lane this morning. You can now see the first Pepperpot (Gedling side) standing in isolation now that all the trees and foliage have been cleared away. I hope they're not going to pull it down.
  3. I wonder if they have filled in the old railway tunnel. Does anyone know?
  4. The café can now do hot food again. The arboretum generally seems much tidier than it was a few months ago. The litter problem seems to have been tackled. (I hope these are not famous last words!)
  5. I hope to see your findings one day Rachael. I live locally and helped campaign to preserve the community centre.
  6. There are plans to demolish this old cinema. This would be a real shame as it's found a new use over the last year. https://www.gedlingeye.co.uk/top-stories/majestic-cinema-mapperley-facing-demolition/ Feel free to post an objection here: http://publicaccess.nottinghamcity.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=summary&keyVal=P4YQSRLYMI800
  7. I was too knackered! It was a long way on my 11(?) year old legs and uphill on the way home.
  8. Just an aside. When I was a little boy, I found a five pound note on the road. Stupidly I told my mother. She made me take it to the police station on Cavendish Road. I walked down Westdale Lane, then down Cavendish Road. I handed it over to a bemused policeman, and trudged all the way home again to Mapperley. I should have just spent it.
  9. I despair. Democracy is being strangled by parliament.
  10. This is a shame. I've been going regularly and have really enjoyed it.
  11. My first car was a Vauxhall Nova. It was new, but it started to rust virtually straight away. This was late 1984.
  12. My band consists of a clarinetist, a guitarist, and a drummer. The others seem to have run off to New Orleans.
  13. I have the Robertson's Golly jazz band. Not sure where they are at the moment though.
  14. Can anyone remember a submarine in the Market Square? If it wasn't a dream, it must have been in the early 1970's. I got to look through the periscope at the buildings outside.
