Robin Crapper A Walkley gentleman .

I knew a Robin Crapper builder he used to booze in the Yew Tree Coal Aston and also a regular at Owlerton dog track, his relative was a trainer down there maybe Robin was as well..

He passed away a few years ago.

 Robin passed away in his sleep while on holiday in Tenerife with his wife!.It was a shock as he always seemed healthy and was never overweight or ailing anything,I think heart trouble ran in the family but nobody expected it just the same!.

That's him, yes it was a shock the only thing I can think of was he was a big drinker.

Back on the suit topic did you know Tommy Machin ( Tommy the tailor)?, he had the old Bert Rhodes shop on Heeley then later a shop at Hillsborough and never missed a Dog meeting at Owlerton.

Ashley Rogers at the Manor Top as well he now spends most of his time on the Algarve?.

They were characters with a few stories to tell.
