Im from hall farm just up the road Paula is from peterlee we met 4 years ago at the inn place where I work. Funny thing is she had been to Copt hill to celebrate her 50th earlier that evening. She had been to Roda I hadn't so 3 years ago we went. Fell in love with the place straightaway same as did with Paula.We've been back once and in August it will be our 3rd time. P.s. Come and watch the colliery sometime ha.
I used to play footy against Silksworth on a sunday when i played for Houghton Glendale(many moons ago) and i used to work at Wearmouth pit with an old character called Tommy Defty - lovely bloke. We have been going to Roda for the last 7 years but we were also there about 12 years ago when the kids were small. we always stay at the Melinda which is next to the roundabout (crossroads)and are actually already booked for 2017

I played many a time against Glendale for plainsey and then silky buffs winning a lot .Sadly CIU footie stopped and most workman's clubs are struggling now. In fact on about Glendale I was despatch office manager at Vaux (never thought it would shut) and a few of the draymen drank in their ,Bobby Hall been one. Workwise during the day takes me to see Davey at the Comrades and Dairy Lane Bowls tomorrow I'm in the beer gas business. We at Afrodite this year for 3 weeks and it is 3 in a row.Nice chatting to you.
