    Wigan

    The pubs might have officially closed at 11pm but most pubs carried on serving behind closed doors. also the Casino started opening earlier towards the end... We never went in the John Bull it was more of a bikers pub, and I didn't spend much time in the Raven... The Clarence now called Sams Bar (Its a shit hole now) just up from the station, Crofters on the junction of Hallgate and Market St, The Grand Hotel. Dorning St and the Wallgate.. A club above Wallgate station along with the pictures is where we would go, although sometimes we went in early and cleaned up to get in free Some of my mates think the plaque is sited in the wrong location, it's a long time ago and it's difficult to say If your coming into Wigan via J25/M6 you will pass a Northern Soul sculpture screen the council erected, if your not passing it's not worth making a trip though Have you got a date when you visiting???

    Wigan

    The "Bees Knees" did change to the "Last Orders" but has now reverted back to it's original name "Dog and Partridge" It's worth going upstairs in the "Grand Arcade" to the "Casino Cafe" they have some good original Casino memorabilia on display and check out the murals on the walls to the upstairs exit If you turn right into the street before you enter the Arcade you are on "Millgate" you will see some of the "Ship Hotel" facade on your right.... If you continue on your right is a bar called "Casino de Cuba" if it is open they have plenty of Dave Barrows Casino prints on display... Bri Rigby who was an original Beachcomber n Ms DJ runs a soul night there on some Sundays.... The front door entrance to Ms was opposite the bar and slightly up the hill The "History Shop" has been renamed "History of Wigan Life" it is on Library St... note it is closed on Wednesdays..... ask for the Casino catalogue, it has an index to link to all the Casino newspaper cuttings and articles Their is an art shop on Hallgate which is off Market St.... The shop sometimes has Dave Barrows work on display and I'm sure it's Russ's old record shop If your in Wigan at the weekend there are often soul events on, some are good Hope you enjoy your visit to my home town.. Fred

    TWISTED WHEEL CLUB @ ALTER EGO SUNDAY SOUL

    Have you ever been or did you miss the Mod Room ???
  6. There are reasons it was changed so that you need a gmail/google account and I'm sure it wasn't all down to Pete.. Anyone wishing to view it can.. It takes 2 mins to set up an account.. If folks can't contact Pete PM me their address and I will arrange for the link to be forwarded

    TWISTED WHEEL CLUB @ ALTER EGO SUNDAY SOUL

    Loved it on Sunday.. It was great to see so many faces from all over the Country including Cambridge, Northampton and Yorkshire The only problem I had was deciding which room to stay in
  8. To view the video you need to have a gmail or google account to send to Pete Smith who will then send you a link to view it.. Anyone on FB can send the link to Pete in a pm.. I'm sure plenty of folks have petes email address and could get the link via email
  9. The Dancers appeared on TOTPs twice and there was a slight change in the Dancers, they included Gethro, Jako, Steve Powell, Kim, Anne Rodgers Kim was Gethros GF who he later married, she sadly died many years ago Vernon told me that all the heats and the finals of a Wigan dance comp were filmed to show serving squaddies.. Now I would love to see a vid of that
  10. As Pete Smith doesn't appear to be active on SS and there is interest in the TOTPs recording I have copie what pete posted on FB for anyone wanting to see the video Hello. Right I have sussed out this video business so if any of you want to watch the Wigans Chosen Few "Footsee" TOTP 75 video this is what you have to do. This is a bit convoluted but it's the only thing we could come up with. I have full permission to post it now. First you have to have a gmail account (google mail), if you haven't got one go to the address at the bottom. If you don't have gmail you cannot watch it. Then you are going to have to message me to give me your email address. I will then add you to the list of people who can watch it. You will have to personal message me to do this (or email me if you already have my email address). Please be patient as I'll be offline all night obviously. You can post your email address here at your own risk from spammers. When I have your address you'll get sent the link and you can watch it until the cows come home. Anyone can copy this and paste it to Soul Source or anywhere else if they want to. I'd like everyone to be able to see it. If you're not interested that's fine, but a lot of people still want to see it and this is the only way at the moment. cheers Pete Smith

    any bee keepers on here

    Hiya... Yes I am a Beekeeper and I also remove n collect swarms and established colonies You need to establish what type of Bees you have as they are under a shed it is likely they are a type of Bumble Bee.. Bumble Bees n Wasps die off in the Autumn and the Queens hibernate over winter.. Honey Bee Colonies overwinter as a colony and can remain in situ permanently My email for Bee n Wasps is fredsbees@hotmail.com send me a pic and I will ID it for you or use the link.. If you want further info/advice send me a message https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=wasp+identification+chart&rlz=1C1DSGL_enGB417&espv=2&biw=1366&bih=623&tbm=isch&imgil=TkCGM9vbxNnWcM%3A%3BPfqtGhYY5a9iVM%3Bhttps%253A%252F%252Fwww.pinterest.com%252Fpin%252F308707749430750947%252F&source=iu&pf=m&fir=TkCGM9vbxNnWcM%3A%2CPfqtGhYY5a9iVM%2C_&usg=__e8hKgAfL6eSwjKCp0K1L_sMlnEA%3D&ved=0ahUKEwiQ78qb07HOAhXrBcAKHenYAs4QyjcIJw&ei=O2SoV9DlNeuLgAbpsYvwDA#imgrc=TkCGM9vbxNnWcM%3A
