Thank you for the song. I believe I saw that you came from/live in Nottingham? My mother used to work there when I worked in Derby. We lived in Chaddesden between the two. My mother was a bingo manager of all things at a city centre site. I expect Nottingham has changed a lot since then!
Sorry I've been away for the weekend...got back today.
I've been to Nottingham for my friend's birthday bash.
You've brought back some memories I can tell you.
I left Nottingham in 1972 and in 1973, the great re-development of Nottingham began.
Before the bypass was constructed around Derby, there used to be a bottleneck at Chaddesden...the ' Chaddesden crawl ' we used to call it. I regularly visit to see friends and relatives. My late aunt Ida I am sure played bingo where your mum worked.

Small world indeed. Mum worked for Ladbrokes at that time - I worked in their cinema at chad.
Have you seen all the Youtube feature on Chaddesden? Seems someone has filmed the entire place from a car!! http://www.youtube.com/results?search_q ... arch_type=
