Hello all, thanks for the responses.. I found a Miney Todd in Colwick!, there is only one, so it must be her..I was quite young when my mum worked there. I was born 67' when Paddie was just 25! I remember visiting Miney in her flat in Carlton, her collection of stuffed owls in glass cases used to unnerve me. Does anyone remember the names?

OMG. I remember the Hippo bit worked there when it was Camelot . Tony had it then. Pauline Walters on reception. Howie Howard Cooper was the DJ along with others, Nott's Forest crowd especially Viv Anderson, Bertram Bowry,Rachel (blond), a girl called Elvira who were always with a girl with long dark hair, I think her name was Cathy who went out with someone called Steve, Louie Lyndsey and lots of others. I also frequented The Penny Farthing but forget the name they changed it to immediately after that,scampi and chips from the hatch and someone called Vinnie with a slight quiff who was down there all the time. Does this bring back any memories?

Maid Marion, Vinnie was the youngest of three brothers - the eldest was Tony, can't remember the on in the middle. Tony was a big soul fan, used to go out to the states to buy 45s and stuff. The middle brother worked in the Victoria centre at a clothes shop, on the first floor, at the opposite end to the water fountain. they were all just a little bit Harry Nash, but great guys generally That's pretty much all I remember, I'm afraid

Charlie,

I did not know you were still around.

Terry who owned Pharo's also owned the Blue Orchid with Brian.

I remember them both well as I DJ'd there as well.

Jean and Dot were behind the bar at Pharo's and I DJ'd.

No idea what happened to Keith (Petal) and Pat his wife.

Last time I saw him he was getting into lighting systems.

Pop ran the 8 till late which became a gay club.

At the Hippo where I also Dj'd Cranky Carol, Chantal Prevost worked the bars.

There was another tall blonde Jackie who also worked the bars.

The restaurant was run by a Spanish Guy.

Gordon Long sold it to Alan after it had become Mr Millers and he had about as much idea of running a club as.

He also opened the French Bistro opposite the CO Op department store which has now gone.

I remember you were going out with Alison who worked the cloakroom then the twins.

I don't know what happened to Carol or Anne Freeman who worked at the Blue Orchid.

I remember Jack and French George who ran the Pelham.

Black Henry and many others from that time.

You were a good DJ and worked the audience well.

Regards,

Dave
