Yes ,we always called Horseshoe "Afferties" i dont know why but remember going to weddings etc in the hut at the back.

Jim.

 

The name Afferties came from a old landlord who was known as Affertie.My grandad used the pub every day with his mates who were also well known they were known as Fredrick the pork butcher, Wild who was a fishmonger,and a guy called Goodman who was a tailor.This was before the war and during the war needless to say my dads family never went short during the coupon days.

The story goes the landlord would be able to set his watch by them and have ten pints of ale on the bar waiting for them to appear.

The spelling could be wrong it could well be Hafferty.

I am not sure about the piano player it was not a pub i used but as I said my grandfather was always in there.

As for the church hall at St Christophers I used to go there in the early sixties .It was a youth club with a difference.T hey used to have live music on and they had some top groups on .I saw the Mersey Beats there .Can you imagine a youth club today having top groups on?It would not happen now .I think two guys called Lister and Smith ran it .They were local guys who also had a coach business and a fruit shop.

As well as the Merseybeats, ( for whatever reason) they, St. Christopher's-) had quite a few groups from the Liverpool area late '63 early '64. I saw Wayne Fontana and the Mindbenders -who were from Manchester- who had already had a chart hit there in 1964. So the Stringfellow's didn't have it all their own way.
