Many thanks for everyones kind comments excluding one, which is irrelevant anyway.

As everyone knows me and Carl have been successfully running venues for a long time and as such these venues are well attended. People who have other venues ask what the secret formula is for running successful Northern nights. There is no secret, all it takes is hard work and attention to detail, the right Dj's and giving the paying public what they want. We have turned down a lot of venues because they did'nt feel right or they would have clashed with other established Soul nights in the area and thats how it is.

As for the other matter. Carl quite rightly said that we were approached by the Welfare, the reason being they knew how successful the Kingsway Hall nights were and asked if we could do the same at the Welfare, we told them we would give it a go. At no time did myself or Carl go there and steal it as is being implied and if that is what he would like people to think, I know he will be proved sadly wrong.

One thing with the Northern Soul scene is like minded people attract each other and bad persons get found out for what they really are. This has happened many times over the years and it looks like history is repeating itself here.

To finish I look forward to welcoming all our friends from all over England and all the other people willing to make the journey on Saturday night to the beginning of a new era at Forest Town Welfare. Get your dancing shoes ready for Me, Carl, Graham Weaver and Mitch, you wont be disappointed.

let it go dennis, you're a bit like me my friend..... not many people actually like you but unlike me.... you care what people think.

it seems to me you feel you have to bring others down because of your own shortcomings, bringing them down, in your eyes helps you to attain their level.

you dropped the ball

you drove the welfare into the 'soul wilderness'

stop blaming others for your loss, grow up and accept it.

walk away before you make yourself look even more sour, sad and spiteful.

i have no problem with you, i just feel that you are so full of hatered because you can't be a player on this scene that you are blaming others, look in the mirror!

here's one major way we differ.... i'm not a player, never want to be, i'm a punter who is sometimes asked to dee-jay and that's good enough for me, pity that wouldn't be good enough for you.

i wish carl and ian all the success in the world for this venue because it's a great venue which i would have been to many more times if only i had liked or respected the promoter.... you see.... that's how it works.

'backstabbers', not really a northern tune is it, perhaps your irony would have found a more acurate springboard if it were launched on titles like "The Snake", or even the Ikettes "Two Timin' Double Dealin'".... just a thought xx

Coops Ian and Carl I do more for the Forest Town welfare than you think, just last month I organize one for the Forest Town welfare got over 150 in they took £1500 over the bar. On the 22nd Jan got another one booked at the welfare expecting 150 again

April 9th expecting 200/250, July & Aug what it's all for "the Welfare" and not for capital gain

Carl & Ian I was told that you promised the directors over 200 if you could have the main room, so your friends should attend and for-fill your promises to the directors.

I do hope you succeed and get your numbers right and the takings over the bar go's well, you see it's my local I don't want it to close like many other welfares.

When I was told that you had approached the welfare to organize a private function on the 5th Dec, I new then what you was up to, and I told the directors that you advertised it as a Northern Soul Night on soul source and that's when I told them that you should do the Bank Holiday ones as well because I wouldn't.

So you go for it, and say it was them who approached you. I say it was your intention, and because what Graham, & Mick & your self instigated over year ago people don't forget, that you were going to kill Forest Town's Bank Holidays and yes you did exhalant job. Good look to you all,

Mick I have nothing against you. But keep you opinions to your-self you will be better thought off or should I say people will think better of you.

You see the different between you and I mate, I did it for free my pleasure, and payment was the dancers, and any promoter that run venues, and that I have been invited too will tell you, I took no £ from spinning some vinyl unlike some I could mention.

I should say you Four did us a big favour, Ann "n" I, are glad to be out off your Northern Soul Scene, with one thing or another unknown to your-selves.

I'm too busy doing my own thing but don't try to belittle me, because my mind is very clear I've or I should say we have done nothing to any one of you and

"you know that for a fact".

sorry dennis, you miss the whole point, it's not important to me how i am perceived by others but it is important for me to say how i feel about a subject.

the castigation of others is a small price to pay for airing one's princibles, for if one hides them under a cover of insecurity and lack of self belief then one doesn't really have anything 'real' in one's life.

Don't know what you mean Carl, and I thought it was when I told you that Ian would never play on my decks again, from the time you went to the states or have you forgot.

Any way enough said. Carl I do hope you and Ian do well together, and I have no hard feelings but to thank you both and you have my total support in the Forest Town Welfare "new" Northern Soul Night.

Mick there you go again, always got to poke one in. But no hard feeling with you nether have a nice life.

Hi Carl / Mick

Got a PM this morning saying, now that I hold no grudges with Carl and Mick? Would I hold my hand out in friendship, and forget what as gone on in the past.

I told him, life's to short and yes I would hold my hand out to all, and forget what as been done and said in the past, and start a fresh, so I think it's up to us all "are we able to forgive and forget". I am

i don't have anything to forgive you for Dennis or indeed have the power of forgiveness, I'm not (despite what some may think my opinion of myself is) a God or even a demi God.

as for my part i totally agree life is far too short to hold a grudge.

I'll shake your hand any day my friend (just as i did at Butlins') I'll even allow you to buy me a coke if you're flushed thumbsup.gif

if i did have anything to forgive you for i would in deed forgive, but i rarely forget (unless it's where i've left my car keys etc. etc. wink.gif

Sorry Carl but I can and will forgive and forget, and my hand is always there like before when I supported you and your venues for 10 years I thought has a friend it just shows our wrong I was.

I don't need to ask Trev you see I go back to a time when you were at school and Ann was serveing groceries to your Mum at the Co-Op, I even worked with your dad down the pit way back before you met my brother.

So yes I've known you and your family more than you think.

When it was the first time round back in the late 60's you would be 10 and our friend Mr. Hall would have been Dj'in at our local the Cat. The second time round would be 70's and you would have been old enough to come to some of the same venues, Remember Bob, Tony, Lloyd, Mick, Kev and yes me we were going through to the middle 80's. So my pedigree is there

My hand is always there, and will-not stay in my pocket.
