Hi all, Is anyone interested in a trip - or two - to The Queens Theatre, Hornchurch? I looked at the Des O'Connor Show, which is in in February, but it's fully booked! I saw him last year. He has aged a lot, but is still a great Entertainer. ... [ more ]
Hi George, I've seen "How Sweet It Is" at the Queens in Hornchurch, four times. It's so good! I think Hornchurch people must be a little more reserved, because bopping ladies have never been a problem there. But then, I always go for seats near to ... [ more ]
If it was Motown you saw George, the women dancing were probably 6o somethings lol. That is really something that iritates me, not being able to see because the people in front stand up and it should be banned in all theatres.

Hello everyone, There are lots of shows coming up soon, at the Brookside Theatre, Romford. If anyone's interested, please let me know.
There is a shop closing in South Street Romford opposite Yates, looks like some bargains there, £1 jumpers
Go into Home Bargains in Romford Market and buy the equivalent there. Much cheaper and just as nice, just like all their sweets! I am addicted to their Newberry Fruits!
Jean, that is so true, or next door , not sure if I can say the name of the shop, but the initials are B&M, we love that store, their cat food is best price anywhere.

Can anyone recommend a Party wall surveyor? Our neighbour is having work done and we have been inundated with surveyors letters offering their services, but would rather use one that comes recommended.
Thank you for your recommendations, i will give them a call. yes, the letters i have received state that the owner of the property having the building works done pays the surveyor.
Definitely the neighbour pats the bill and it's your choice which surveyor you use not there's ,

Mags, I thought the Kirby trip was on December 10th, I have something else to do on the 10th. I would love to have gone today. Where did the coach leave from?
Angela G, I think they are doing one next week but just an ordinary trip. We picked coach up from Hornchurch, other pick ups Romford, Collier Row and Harold Wood. We only found out as my friend phoned then up didn't see it advertised anywhere.
Anyone fancy making up a group to go out for a drink at Christmas and New Years Eve? Last year some of us went to George the Second in Hornchurch and had a great time.

Have you ever used any Linda? Some of them aren't that good. I've had my fingers burnt once or twice.
I use the guy on Heathway, a few shops down from the station. Always been perfectly happy with, and l am fussy.
no que at traffic light junction on southend road for airfield way, why you ask? no traffic lights working. zero que and no horn honking. perhaps the lights should bedone away with altogether.
Lee K. has hit the nail on the head, no lights would be a problem for pedestrians mums with kids would be at a tremendous disadvantage.
then why not put pedestrians lights ( crossing ) there winner all around.... people can cross and no traffic win win..
