Irene and Frank Crew by Michael Pratt (Member 10026938) on 25-Feb-2001
I visited Clevedon as a child in 1965 and wonder if anyone remembers my aunt and uncle? Irene ran her own duplicating and typing business, Frank was head waiter at the Walton Hotel. Please leave a message and I'll pass on the onformation to my mother, Georgina (Irene's sister).   
  • Re: Irene and Frank Crew by Jill Adams (Member 10072985) on 12-Jul-2002
    Hi Michael - yes I remember Frank Crew. He ran the dining room at the Walton Park and I worked there as a waitress 30 years ago! He was very strict and took no nonsense from newcomers. I think that's why the dining room had such a high reputation. I can remember many hours struggling to learn "silver service" and being petrified that I'd mess it up in front of Frank! I seem to recall he wore ... more >>

Poems by Ron (Member 10013938) on 16-Feb-2001
Hello all!
Can you help? I am trying to arrange a poem on as many Cities, Towns and Villages, in the U K as I can.

Perhaps a local dance hall or cinema no longer there, a famous street where all the boys and girls would meet.
A famous person p... more >>

    Having visited Clevedon fairly often in early seventies thing that stands out in my mind is the town pier with big chunk missing in the middle, guess rest of it is long gone now but seems like an item that local townspeople will appreciate remembering when set in a poem.

Paul Taylor ???? by a friend (Member 10006246) on 20-Apr-2000
I'm looking for information about someone who calls himself 'Paul Taylor'. His Christian name probably is Paul, but not so sure about 'Taylor'.
