    Yes, a month or two ago. The rent of the stall was pricing him out apparently. Sailor Sids is still there, but I always preferred Sid Tyas's stall, as did my kids after me.

    Sailor Sid's stall is still there. He lives just down the road from me.

    Apologies, thought the two Sids were one in the same.

    Chantry video shop

    The opening day of EGS was mad. The counter started falling over, so everyone got kicked out at the back, including those waiting to pay for the records that they then just walked off with. Maybe it was the special appearance of Black Lace that did it!

    Definitely Black Lace. From a distance there may be a similarity with all that blonde hair I suppose.

    the day they broke my heart was when

    they demolished the town hall in Hoyland. That day they ripped the heart out of my home town.They also built over a majority of the Cloughs near springwood.They demolished and built houses over the "Wooden School" that'was my infant school... They later demolished the school at Hoyland common at allots corner... that was my Junior School... They literally took my childhood away with a wrecking ball and a Bulldozer... and yes it hurt me deeply.


    Hoyland now is a steel/plastic/concrete MESS.... heartless except for one thing..... one very very special thing dear to me.


    its people.

    Salt of the earth.

    Sam Fox opened the McDonalds I think. Well, she was supposed to, we skived off school to see her but she wasn't there. Maybe we had the wrong day or the wrong time; I can't imagine our research was up to much and I still don't know to this day if she actually did or not. Still, a Big Mac is better than double English and I don't suppose she would have let me feel her tits anyway.

    Most teenage boys were absent that afternoon hoping she'd open something!
    I had a vivid memory that it was Andys Records/EGS?!? But my mid 90's recreational drugs stage is eventually catching up with me!

    The old Old No. 7... Now we're talking. There is no where like it anymore.
