19 posts in this topic

During the 1970s The Cadland became famous for the Christmas parties held in Chilwell, Long Eaton and surrounding areas, due to the ever increasing numbers that wanted to attend.

Dick & Tony Widdowson

Lenny Stevenson

Roy Foulger

Alan Richards

Louis Francis

Cliff Harvey

Ben

Alan

Frank

Kim

Terri Fisher

Carol

Catherine Greasley

and so many others.

These parties grew in size year after year and bigger venues were needed to accomodate all who wished to play.

I always fancied BARBARA YOUNG from Long Eaton/Sawley, whatever happened to her, gorgeous girl with a great body...

A long time ago but great fun.

Hello.

I remember that crowd of Posers, the Cecil Cee lads were part of the same gang and they all ran riot with all the girls, we were so jealous and could not understand how they got in Free to all the clubs (Penny Farthing - Scamps etc) without having to join the line to enter.

Money and Cars speak a lot.

My sister worked for Chelsea Girl and went with one of the Cecil Gee lads and she told me that the Victoria Centre manager and a couple of the (girls) shop managers had a meeting with Cecil Gee's because they were making all the girls late for work and also blamed them for the staff turning up with hangovers.

Cecil Gee did have the best party in town but we were never allowed in.

I do remember Barbara Young(Great Tits)

I asked her to dance one night at Scamps but she told me to bu99er off,

she went out with that George bloke and dumped him for the manager of Cecil Gee.

She went with him for years after that and her blond mate went with Dick Widdowson for quite a while.

Both got mucked about a lot though, that crowd treated girls quite badly but girls seemed to queue up to go with them

We were so envious.... How did they do it?

I left Nottingham shorty after and went to live in Oxford and now live in Germany with a beautiful German wife and family but I do look back and think of Nottingham in the 70s and I still cannot figure out how the bloody hell did that crowd, have so many women, what were they drinking, because If I knew, I would have had some.

Good times with good memories.

Mark.

This is a bit long in the tooth (so am I these days) but I saw this topic while searching for something totally unrelated. Lived in Beeston until 1972 and went to South Africa and never really came back to Nottingham. I used the Cadland a bit but it wasn't my favourite boozer, my local was the Durham Ox in Beeston.

Anyway, I saw Lennie Stevenson and Dick Widdowsons name mentioned so thought I'd better join up and post.

Do any of you remember Murray Frew? Or Mick Simmons? Gina Furness? They were Cadland regulars.

I remember that era. Yes, it was owned by old lady Lennard. A mate of mine went out with the grand daughter, Marylyn.

Yes the Lennards and cool on Murray, it was Abbey Road, we used to get up to a lot of nonsense. Then he moved to West Bridgford and we lost touch but I did emigrate to South Africa in 1972 which may have had something to do with it :)

Just double posting here but weren't some of the Lennards in to their horses?
