its been a few years since making contact with the forum. I picked up on this roller rink link. I went a few times to the rink only tried the skates once broke two fingers on my left hand and struggled home on my motor bike back to Stirchley. My Brother in Law Ron Sargent lived for the rink. it would be great to know that he is remembered as he passed Christmas 2019. some may remember him as the Tanner kid who sold his kisses for a Tanner to sub his night out. His sister Linda Sargent and brother Steve Sargent are still kicking around, mind you the wife is still kicking me around.
crikey it has been a long time tiny..how is claire doing? sorry to hear about your brother in law maybe some of our members may remember him...hopefully when times are safer we hope to hold another forum meet up it would be great to see you and claire again we need to get some brummies under one roof again ...take care
