I sold Cilla Balck when I worked in Accent in GX - she definitely thought she was better than others....

I sold Jan Leeming a bra (flesh coloured coz of the TV lights and yes I remember her size but she was lovely so my lips are sealed) and a pair of yellow trousers.

And I sold Patrick Mower (Emmerdale etc) a cabbage in Jamisons, but 3 years before I had had a very interesting time selling him a suspender belt and stockings.....he was a real charmer

And I also served President Kenyatta's daughter...because she was black and the shop owner wouldn't serve her! She bought loads and I got a LOT of commission thanks to her

And I've served Angelina Jolie, Vernon Kay, Leo Sayer and Pauline Quirk in Sainsbury's last year....

So all those people can boast about how they've been served by me!

Still don't know what I want to do when I grow up...

I lived at no 7 from when it was built 1968 to 1976 with my parents, we then moved to Bull Lane, not so good for playing marbles in the road!

Dan, talk to Paul Neville and P.J.Deacy who both drink in the White Hart to this day,

Paul used to share a flat with a guy named Rob Cooksey who used to drive a lorry for Sankeys (now where the betting shop is) and he went on to be a 'roady' for a band called Bonzo Dog Doodah Band back in the 60s-70s, he then roadied for Olivia Newton John, and eventually became manager of a band called Deep Purple who also used to share accommodation with Paul and Rob.
Rob now lives and is retired in California and may well be reading this post, sorry Rob if I have 'dropped' you in it
P.J Deacy also roadied for many stars.

I remember being in the White Hart back in the 70's when there was a couple of members of Deep Purple, a guy called Rick Wakeman from the band Yes, singer ashley Holt (can't remember the band), Roy Castle and one of his band members, and music composer Eric Rogers who wrote most of the music for the 'carry on' films, also there was a another character by the name of Bob Todd who used to appear in the Benny Hill show, he was in the pub also at this time.

The musicians proceeded to play music with anything they could get their hands on, and Roy Castle and his colleague both played trumpets.
The impromptu band was joined by a local character from Chalfont st Giles called 'Monty' Bignall who played the spoons to the enjoyment of all including the big name stars, who incidentally were not at their peak at his time.

Fantastic memories from a brilliant era, to many to rabble on about here, but hopefully may have rattled a few memories from other people.

Please also remember, many of these characters (due to their ages) do not use computers and may not be aware that this forum exists.

Hope it works out for you Dan, I will look forward to reading the finished book.

regards
Garry

Now come on Garry. I know you have many more stories about CSP. Especially have listened (and laughed at) a few on the impromptu 'Blitz' style evening held at the WH during one of the 'blackouts'!

I started horse-riding at Winkers when I was about 5.
