Is that still there? Remember going there with my Grandad when I was about 10 for a carvery. What about Don Luigi? :D

Nice one Jersey, regards to Jurgen.

Yes the Bay Horse is still there. If you went in between 1987 and about 1992 our kid probably cooked your food. Don Luigi is still there as far as I know.

There is a greek I've been told to go to, intend to give that a try when we are allowed out again.

Haha it would have been in that time frame I reckon. Who do I complain to?

Anderson suing the police?  Fucking hell. :lmao

Irony of ironies that Liverpool could end up with the Tories in charge after all!

I’ve just moved to Formby from West Yorkshire.

It’s probably technically not Liverpool and it’s not really news, but after 34 years I finally have an L postcode ;D

Although i've been through Formby millions of times i've never been to Formby Point[i see it everytime i go to my local shore], one of those things to visit when lockdown is over

Whatapp circular special..

"Rumour

Bramley Moore off for the foreseeable. Jenrick won’t approve it. That Operation Aloft investigation by police have been working with UNESCO in the background and uncovered further evidence of corruption. Joe Anderson and the stadium director Colin Chong both implicated. Expected to be re-arrested this week and Jenrick has ordered the govt to step in because it goes right to the top."

Most likely the revenge attack for the Klopp circulars sent out recently.

Well I for one wouldn't be surprised to find out that money changed hands when it came to demolishing the Futurist.

As for suing the police, Joe "Do you know who I am!?" Anderson always was a bit of a bully by all accounts (allegedly).

The new China town was scandalous. Tbf there's probably an element of it in may projects. I hope it all comes out but it could be damaging for the city and it's development. Having said that, there's some really poor stuff getting thrown up with overseas money, not much gets put back into the local economy at all.

St John's seems to be stuck in a 1970s time warp. I was there a couple of years ago and they had one shop with a special section for First Communions.

I have genuinely never been in there, but I'm assuming there's a secret password you tell the entity that lurks within its walls and the entity will then open a secret entrance to a room filled with things that will haunt your every waking moment?

Is that the one in Central? I bought an ex a full length leather coat from there about 20 years ago.

I always wanted a long leather coat, but I'm a short arse so don't really think it would work for me.

Looks like the old Abbey cinema in Wavertree has been saved from demolition, Historic England have listed it grade II so it cannot be knocked down to make way for a new single story bland Lidl.

No comment from Lidl yet but these companies normally get their way in Liverpool as they greatly exaggerate the number of jobs created and the council normally fold.

Don't you just HATE that phrase, "beyond economic repair"?

That's politi-speak for "Yeah, we can salvage it, but there's no money in it for us to do so."

Seen too many of these lovely old cinemas bite the the dust in Liverpool over the past 10 years, Old Swan, Green Lane, Lime Street.  Goodness knows how long the one at the bottom of Park Road has left. Nice to see one saved.
