asks a question, then answer same question with a question of questionable accuracy  :rolleyes:

I've never heard of it before, and I know all the seedy joints in the town , so Oakshaw was a good bet as I haven't frequented that area too often since my school days ! :wink:

Where is that? Up Oakshaw way?

I'm pretty sure it's in the grounds of Orr Square church (to the east of the Kirk) in what was the old manse for Mr Morrison - who was the minister when the 23rd BB was still on the go. Off topic: The BB hall was down Storie Street opposite the Nusery school that's still part of the college, I think.... nice grey sandstone buidling.... unless that's been demolished, too?)

The Ashtree is a V Upmarket guesthouse. It's rumoured that an L. Armstrong stayed there recently... :rolleyes:

I'd forgotten that. He regularly had the bike clips on even when there was NO bike to be seen anywhere... :o

Maybe you knew my granny :zipit

I wouldn't put it past me.... :)

........................ and the owner of a place in County Square is moving into Raeburn's when it's vacated!

My nephew is a chef in Raeburns, told me when they move into the hotel that Raeburns would turn the restaurant into a cafe.

Not seen my nephew since the Blackpool game in the summer so maybe things have changed.

Although it does have a TO-LET 'due to relocation' sign over the door at the moment...

these places need a 50% sale just to get near supermarket prices ,this maybe why they are closing

Too true, although it's the supermarkets and their aggressive purchase policies that are driving the wee places out of business.

Aye but Haddows are giving their long serving employees early retirement....and the packages are absolute gash....I have it on good authority.
