All aboard the train to Skasville...err..Dunstable!

If only it were a bit closer, would love to have gone.
It doesn.t have a train station, so you.ll be lucky.

MEANWHILE OP, a bit more notice would be helpful.

Sounds awesome, but alas am overseas. If it is going to be a regular event, I'll be there next time I'm home. Got a new Fred Perry polo shirt to wear too......

A quick review of the evening would be good if anyone here is going.

Ahhh Dumbfuckstable. We had a platoon there.

I had lunch in the Wetherspoons there a few weeks ago. Full of sexy chavvy single mum types with prams and lit L&Bs. I loved it.

I walked the Sewell cut across the downs. Beautiful.

I lived in Caddington when I was training. Great walks.

Bedfordshire is Britain's most underrated county.

Got mine all hung up in the wardrobe.... one pink, one yellow BS, sadly the 501's are now a 38 waist, not a 28 waist

Was in Primark last winter.... they were selling off those flimsy desert boots you got in the 60's, paper thin suede, but really comfy, for about £3 a pair.... got 6 pairs.

Watched SoulBoy last week, reminded me what nutters the northern soul scene were. Love to go but it's a long way to walk back from, which for some reason I do every time

I'll stick the tonic suit on and do a bit of toe tapping in your honour

Oh yes, this sounded good. Alas I only picked it up today so yes please, keep us posted on next event.

Also hope everything went well for with your angiograme matter.

For those of you still keeping the faith its my sad duty to inform you that famous northern soul artist and tamla motown composer frank Wilson died last Thursday.
His most famous hit was do I love you (yes I do) and had many many dance floors filled every time it was played, it also has the distinction of being one of the rarest singles going because franky ordered production to stop and only a few originals were released.
Next time your at a NS night and dancing to his songs give a spin and dance your socks off.
Keep The Faith
