Yes sorry I remember now you were a Chelmsley Wood kid on the coach. Where did you live before Chelmsley Wood?
Was it a vision, or a waking dream?

Thats right, Kings Norton - Chlemsley Wood - Kings Norton, we were always on the move.... Then also somewhere in the mix there was Hall Green - Great Barr- Hall Green - Sheldon - Hall Green. I was alright, it was the poor cat that suffered  ;D ;D [size=78%]     [/size]

As townie says, not like that when it opened, OK for 3 or 4  years then went downhill. The first Gaffer was a big bloke called Trever. Couple of blokes with Piano and guitar used to play there on Sunday nights (I think). They were like a Brummie Chas and Dave. I can still see that 1970's pink draylon upholstery in the lounge......

The Friendly pub was always a clicky pub.

Ya know townie, the majority of the of the old pubs were like that, but we never noticed t in our own backyard. Most but not all pubs these days are passing but local trade.
