The Orwell - wigan - sat 22 Nd. March

Recommended Posts

Well didn,t make Wilton(work commitments!) nearly didn,t get to the Orwell,when we woke up and saw the snow on Sat morning---but glad we made the effort.Very strange getting off the train at Wigan Wallgate for the first time in about 25 yrs!!!By the way Wigan town centre has gone ---Station Rd. does not exsist anymore---Taxi driver says"That,s where the Casino was "(poiting at the enormous shopping mall!).

Anyway the Orwell--easy to find--great nite--lovely to finally meet Shaun Robbins and Bob the Crate,Nicky and Blake,Neil,Linda,Sean and all the Wakefield City Soul Gang---great music --special mentio to Steve Plumb--great spot and he sold me some nice sounds(finally got a copy of "Girl Overboard" after 15 yrs. of looking!!

Nice guest house (altho i don,t remember going home!!!) bloody good nite--oh and Hull City won yet again!!!)

Keep on etc.

Hi T & R

Great to see you both last Friday - sorry for the late reply, had a busy old Easter!

Thanks for the kind words and thanks for starting the thread thumbsup.gif

We had a ball on Friday!

Both rooms were very well attended and the atmosphere in both rooms was great all night! A great way to celebrate our 8th Anniversary!

Will put down some more thoughts when i get chance this week BUT suffice to say a big THANKS to everyone who supported us thumbsup.gif

I don't think this will be the last you all hear of the 'choose yer room' approach at The Orwell cos it worked a treat!!!!!!!!!!!

Cheers

Steve
