Hi all, The delight of a light breaky for two of us at the Mayors café in Bedworth. Very nice as well as the ambiance. A picture looking through the window where we were sat watching a grey squirrel, pigeon & blackbird all running around. The pigeon had tried to take off with a huge tree branch which even with turbo boost had to return to the ground. The blackbird entered the fray taking part of the branch whilst the pigeon was more successful with the lighter load with his second take off.

Hi again sir. Came out the Navy in '79 and lived in 'Beduth' (Housing Assoc. flat at Croft Pool) until 1981 when I moved to Warwick, so that period would have been my last visit to Nuneaton. As an aside, an aquaintance from up here on the Moray Coast is down there shortly at a reunion/music fest. for veterans of the 'Greenjackets' Thumbs up Cheers Post copied from topic Wartime defences on 8th Jul 2017 6:48 pm

Croft Pool, now there's a thing. There was actually a pool there. It belonged to the father of a mate of mine named Bing Twigger. His dad was known as Altie and owned a pub on Newtown Rd and the pub still has the name of Altie's on the front wall. In my view Beduth has been ruined. In the 50s it really a wonderful town.

LesMac, now there's a thing. Jack Hackett, Beduth councillor in the fifties, every time he came home on leave during the war he had on a different uniform, couldn't make head or tail of him.

You are not wrong LesMac. I worked with a chap whose favourite phrase was "There`s no place like Beduth"

LesMac, Except that if you wanted to get into Coventry, then it was a case of 'Smoke gets in your eyes'

Kaga. Was that Hackett the one that had a dying trade in Beduth? The local undertaker.

LesMac. No, if you're talking about the Hacketts of Longford Bridge at the side of the canal (undertakers) Jack Hackett came from Lentons Lane.
