I was Chairmen of the Board's sound guy on a UK tour in the mid seventies and we did a week's residency at Bailey's Leicester. Stayed at the Holiday Inn and had a great week. I remember the MC's assistant called Tricia. Prettiest girl I ever saw.

Yes, I remember the series "The Secret War", and its footage of the giant Panjamdrum, and the first time I had ever heard the word "COLOSSUS" in relation to intelligence.

A pal of mine Dave Makin [size=78%]in the late 60's/early 70's dad used to own The Nite Owl. Would be good to get in touch again.[/size]

War Memorial
On Wednesday 21st August 1940, a lone Dornier 17 bomber from the German Air Force or Luftwaffe dropped its bombs along Cavendish Road killing 6 civilians-3 from Saffron Hill Road and 3 from Cavendish Road. Their ages range from 76 to just 2 years.
There are still people alive who remember the bombing. Their stories are told on the website: airraidshelterstories (
77 years later, the Aylestone Park Residents’ Group are organising a Weekend of Remembrance to commemorate the dead.
We have permission to install a War Memorial on the wall outside of the Church of the Nativity on Cavendish Road above the entrance door. It is proposed to be an A4 size stainless steel memorial because it would last longer.
An Exhibition will be held from 11am to 1pm in the Church Hall of the Church of the Nativity on Saturday 19th August. There will be old German maps and photographs showing the effects of the bombing along with pictures showing the scene today.
The Memorial will be on display.
Admission will be free.
A Service of Dedication will be held from 10.30am on Sunday 20th August at the Church of the Nativity. The Memorial will be “Blessed” and the dead will be remembered.
All Welcome
For Further information, please telephone/text Christopher Garner on 07514416698.
Hi Grimlin,
I have a 1949 Rover car and it has a brass plate 2.75" x 1.5" affixed to the radiator showing 'Victory Radiator and Welding Works, Woodgate, Leicester - All types built and repaired, radiators built to order'. The car was registered new in February 1949 at Burton Road Garage Melton Mowbray and the brass plate is stamped Dec 1949 so perhaps the car's radiator needed attention a few months from new. Like you I'd like to know more about the works.
Hi Sara,

I've had Patella Tendonitus on my left knee that still causes me aggreviation after corrective surgery.

I've also just finished treatment, if you call it that at the Glenfield hospital on my right shoulder / collar bone as I have tendonitus there also, but just had a steroid injection to cure.

If this ad is still applicable, please get in touch.

Kind regards

There's news that a plaque will be unveiled by Major General AJG Pollard on June 17th at 11.00am at the old Glen Parva Barracks, Tigers Road, South Wigston.

A statement from the editor of the Tigers in the News announced:

"It will be inserted in the outer wall adjacent to the main entrance of the Barrack area to mark the Regiment's historical presence at the Barracks. Those wishing to meet up with old pals are invited to go to the Wigston Club and Institute, on Blaby Road in the centre of Wigston by kind permission of Mr John Hall. The Mayor of Oadby and Wigston and her Consort will be present."
