Re: Rhodes - Greece

Had a split fortnight’s holiday last year. First week we stayed in Faliraki on the edge of the town at Sam’s Apartments, fab place to stay and found Faliraki not as bad as it’s been painted. Second week in the aforementioned Symi, utter joy beautiful island what a chill-out!

Think it was actually no 6 Stoney Street, which runs parallel to Hufling Lane. It was next door to my uncle’s, Mrs Hesketh if I remember rightly. Before, she had Jimmy Mac and Alex Elder as lodgers

When were we last live on the BBC at the Turf?

Struggling to think when BBC cameras were last here for a live game. Could it have even been as far back as the European Cup games in 60/61? I know they will have shown us live in the 1962 Cup final, obviously not at the Turf.
