I remember both the 'skates' and the central that came after. It was just before Zion Lane on the left and upstairs over a furniture store. I first saw Vance Arnold and the Mighty Avengers (Joe Cocker) there - must have been around 1962/63. When it was the 'skates' saturday afternoon used to be the highlight for me and my buddies. Does anyone remember the older (to us) couple that used to figure/skate dance together sometimes then? The floor used to clear for them and everyone watched. People had some respect back then!

I used to know Dougie and didn't know he had died. He used to live close to the bombed out house that had the letters ARP on it and was across from the Liberal Club. It was next to the building site where the nursery used to be in the 50's. For a while there he dated Beryl Newall from Brightside - don't know what became of it though.

I can remember Dougie before he married Beryl we use to hang around together on the holler on Sanderson St. I beleive they divorced many years ago.
