Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Returning from a nice break in Durham via Blubberhouses yesterday set me to thinking what Mrs Trellis and her two erstwhile jesters might be up to this year. Rumour locally is that Boris O'Storiths is elsewhere in the country plotting. Missing his mentor Beamsly Bob hit the bottle and was found mess...

I remember walking to Coates with mi dad watching them build the road. I couldn't understand why this wasn't now called New Road as it was newer than the one from Barlick to Salterforth. Nolic

There are 2 in Barrowford. One just over the bridge by the college that's now an opticians and one opposite the George and Dragon that has a list of the various charges on a board fixed to the wall. Nolic

Re: FORGOTTEN CORNERS

Greenfield Reservoir is not the most idyllic of locations Ian but hit it at the right time and in the right place and you could really bag up. Towards the end of one season in the early 1980's a mate and myself were fishing the canal bank side and bagged up on dustbin lid bream. By mid afternoon we ...

After only 2 weeks on Dulaglutide weekly injections my sugar levels have dropped 3 points on the mmol/L scale. My appetite is much reduced so I'm eating less and loosing weight and I feel better that I have done for a couple of years. Hopefully if this continues I can come off the dreaded metformin....

Re: MAJESTIC CINEMA AND MATT HARTLEY.

Barlick "pop" at the Majestic did not begin until the early 1960's ( 1962 I think) and it ran on a Sunday afternoon. There may have been pop sessions on a Wednesday evening but the big acts came on the Sundays. Nolic

I attended there in the 50's when Doris Riding was headmistress. Mrs Lemon the wife of the Earby Station Master taught there as well as lovely Miss Ogden who had taught my dad when he attended. Not the best academically in the town but a very caring school. Nolic
