the king richard road w.m.c
« on: 21:32:47, 19/03/11 »
Anyone remember the king richards road w.m.c either in the old premises or in the new one?
Can anyone tell me whatever happened to it and when did it close?
Where have all the members gone?
      After a visit back to my home town and my old haunts,it seemed strange not to see it there.
We lived around the corner and went in the club every night,we grew up in that club
    What"s happening to leicester,the westend pub as gone, the bridges have gone, kirby and west as gone.
   Is the black horse,the braunstonegate inn & Marios chippy still about.

I remember going there as a girl with my parents and my treat was a plate of mushy peas with vinegar

My late Father-in-law was a member of the club,and I have in my possession,several of his awards presented for his winning at cribbage.Since I have no use for them,and my husband,who was his only surviving son,died last year,I wondered if Icould return them to the club.I would be grateful if you could let me know if this could be possible. My Father-in-law was George Derbyshire, he was a member for many years and died in 1972.

And the future Pol Pot lived just a block away: see chapter 7 of King Norodoms Head, and chapter 18 for a bit on the cucumber king. With apologies to all for tooting my own horn.
