Hi Derrick. I can remember when the Sikh Temple was a private house, and can remember when it became the Sikh Temple. There used to be an apple and pear tree in the grounds of the Foleshill Social Club. I remember scrumping there once and the owners and customers of club came out and chased my mates away whilst I was stuck up the apple tree!!! The club used to have a bonfire around the back on Guy Fawkes Day. The club also had a youth club every Monday and they played topical records, this was before such an occasion was called "a disco". I remember one of the hits of the day they played was "At The Hop" by Danny and the Juniors!!!

Sad to see that. Used to go the Buffs regularly on Saturday evenings with mum and dad in the sixties.

Hi Derrick. Thanks for picture of what was the Buff's club. It is sad to see, remember when it was the Foleshill Social Club and they had a "Disco" on Monday nights.
