Barry (PS03W) [1365] Mm.
Ken (PS043) [1366] then that transport you could ask about putting it back on again.
Barry (PS03W) [1367] I mean what a what I think I'll probably do is if we can get like erm ... something that's obviously ... our crowd and then ... either ... putting, say, Stella back on or something like that
Ken (PS043) [1368] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [1369] and banging it out ... for one [...]
Ken (PS043) [1370] Can you not stick a band on ... pretty soon or nothing like that?
Barry (PS03W) [1371] Well
Ken (PS043) [1372] People would think we were
Barry (PS03W) [1373] frankly I'm not sure where that stands [...] .
[1374] I mean talking to Charlie, just asking about ... getting some ... student bands on
Ken (PS043) [1375] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [1376] might be an idea cos remember when we had that thin Mar
Ken (PS043) [...]
Barry (PS03W) [1377] when we had that thin Martin's band on.
Ken (PS043) [1378] Yeah, but I was in [...]

Ken (PS043) [1388] Yes.
[1389] Yes.
[1390] It was a really good night that.
[1391] If you make it known that there's stuff like that going on, if you get a band like that you can always just
Barry (PS03W) [1392] Mm.
Ken (PS043) [1393] put a bus on for some people that come down.
Barry (PS03W) [1394] Mm.

[1405] But I, I say if I get ... sh publicity I er ... if I say do, if I say ... cos we haven't got a premium lager on draft so if I stick Stella on draught
Alan (PS040) [1406] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [1407] and then do it as an offer.

Barry (PS03W) [1600] Mm.
[1601] Yeah.
Alan (PS040) [1602] You can float from, but you get a lot of soft wind.
Barry (PS03W) [1603] Right.
Alan (PS040) [1604] But, plenty of them around.
[1605] I never use them as well as my own.
[1606] That's
Barry (PS03W) [1607] Mm.
Alan (PS040) [1608] right.
Barry (PS03W) [1609] Is there much mackerel around?
Alan (PS040) [1610] In boat?
[1611] Er ... like when you go out and catch mackerel you use it for fresh bait then.
Barry (PS03W) [1612] Yeah.
Alan (PS040) [1613] So
Barry (PS03W) [1614] See, it's not a bad fish to eat actually, mackerel.
[1615] Mind you, we don't eat fish.
Alan (PS040) [1616] No.
Barry (PS03W) [1617] And ... I went to ... last summer we took a ... er ... I took a sha er not a sha erm ... tt ... static caravan in, at er ... Prestatyn ... an and erm
Alan (PS040) [1618] Mhm.
Barry (PS03W) [1619] and like, we were just flicking through Ceefax on the telly and it was like ... one of these luxury six berth ones and it was ninety nine quid for a week and, and
Alan (PS040) [1620] Really?
Barry (PS03W) [1621] I mean it was beautiful inside!
[1622] They're normally like a two hundred and fifty, three hundred quid one
Alan (PS040) [1623] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [1624] but it was ... it was cos you had ... you know, you had to go that week kind of thing.
[1625] So we just thought well ... [...] then.
[1626] Erm ... I took the nine year old boat out and just went out in a ... boat we had ... Mary went as well, we were like ... the all [...] job for mackerel ... put this guy's

Alan (PS040) [1629] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [1630] three hours, you know.
[1631] Poor guy was going, well I don't understand it, you know, normally we ... Went to erm ... Malta last year and there was a great erm ... tt ... it's called an underwater safari, but, you know, normally when you're, like on Windermere like you've got a glass-bottomed boats
Alan (PS040) [1632] Oh have they?
Barry (PS03W) [1633] well this was the all, the ho all the hull underneath the water line was glass ... so you were actually sitting ... you know, you weren't looking down, you were actually sitting in, in the ... base of the hull of the boat
Alan (PS040) [1634] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [1635] and, and going, and they went ... er it went out in, off ... to er some of these islands off er ... rocks and that, tour of [...] Malta and that it was superb!
[1636] You were abs you know you were ... er absolute, I mean it was, it was
Alan (PS040) [1637] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [1638] as good as aqualunging without actually getting wet, it was great you know!
[1639] Very good idea that.
[1640] Must have made a fortune!
[1641] It was packed like three or four times a day.
Alan (PS040) [1642] Yeah.
[1643] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [1644] I mean people are fascinated by the sea aren't they?
[1645] They really are.
Alan (PS040) [1646] Oh yeah.

Alan (PS040) [1671] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [1672] You know, so it's like yo you've got on this minute camera on the line and everything, you know so it, so that you can actually get the excitement of watching it ... you know, coming and taking
Ken (PS043) [1673] Can we have a little bit of a discount?

[1696] Fair enough.
Hugh (PS03Y) [laugh]
Ken (PS043) [1697] No!
Alan (PS040) [1698] Well isn't it?
Ken (PS043) [1699] Well I did [...]
Barry (PS03W) [1700] The guy was talking to Pete, he thought he could, he develop, he could develop for coarse fishing
Hugh (PS03Y) [1701] Bye bye.
Barry (PS03W) [1702] er, you know river fishing and that as well, there's spa special camera.
Alan (PS040) [1703] Well where does the actual camera hang off?
Barry (PS03W) [1704] It's hung, it it's hung,i i it's actually not below the boat but, but it
Hugh (PS03Y) [1705] Oh!
[1706] Sure can.
Barry (PS03W) [1707] get it, you see, but i it's ... fantastic watching cos ... you know they were ... they, they ... it was sort of going along the
Alan (PS040) [1708] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [1709] whatever they were using as bait ... presumably some mackerel or something like that but, but as I was saying you could see it trailing through ... and then all, suddenly out of like nowhere this fish would come and like ... chase after it
Alan (PS040) [1710] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [1711] and snap and this, this would go off and you'd be sat there going right then, you actually
Alan (PS040) [1712] Well presumably
Barry (PS03W) [1713] see it take it, you know
Alan (PS040) [1714] the camera eye would be adjustable would it?
[1715] Or
Barry (PS03W) [1716] I presume so, yes.
[1717] I mean they was talking about getting a really small for erm
Alan (PS040) [1718] Oh right.
Barry (PS03W) [1719] you know, to be, to be used in ... in sort of coarse fishing and that.
Alan (PS040) [1720] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [1721] But, of course, the other thing of course ,i it takes out the, the one that got away cos you actually see the one [laughing] that got away
Alan (PS040) [1722] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [1723] you know [] ?
Alan (PS040) [1724] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [1725] There'd ... be some story then. [laugh]
Alan (PS040) [1726] You know what'll happen is ... your camera would
Barry (PS03W) [...]
Alan (PS040) [1727] the cameras'll magnify it anyway won't it?
Barry (PS03W) [1728] Yeah it will.
[1729] It will do.
[1730] Yeah.
[1731] Yeah.
[1732] But it was really, I mean it, it meant of course that ... the other people on the boat could have some enjoyment as well, cos I mean, there's nothing worse i if you ... if there's only one rod out, or two rods out th those boats there's only like a couple of rods out int there on, on
Alan (PS040) [1733] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [1734] those ... for the marlin and the ... and the sharks and that, fishing?
Alan (PS040) [1735] And you don't get many.
Barry (PS03W) [1736] Yeah.
[1737] And it's not like, sort of
Alan (PS040) [1738] Three ... there'll be
Barry (PS03W) [1739] twelve
Alan (PS040) [1740] three or four maximum
Barry (PS03W) [1741] twelve rods out, yeah.
Alan (PS040) [1742] something like that.
Barry (PS03W) [1743] Yeah.
[1744] So any anybody else that's going on board is bored out their brains basically!
[1745] But at least
Alan (PS040) [1746] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [1747] if you got T V monitors you can watch what's going
Alan (PS040) [1748] Watch it.
Barry (PS03W) [1749] on.
Alan (PS040) [1750] That's really good.
Barry (PS03W) [1751] So now, now I mean ... now with all the radar and ... whatever else we're using, I mean ... you should really be able to find fish.
Alan (PS040) [1752] Well that, that boat from Evesham that we went out on a couple a years ago it had a fish finder on it.
Barry (PS03W) [1753] Mm.
Alan (PS040) [1754] So ... it er, [...] fish finder on it.
Barry (PS03W) [1755] Yeah.
Alan (PS040) [1756] You throw your line out, you don't get a few just biting.
Barry (PS03W) [1757] No.
[1758] No, that's right.
[1759] That's right.
[1760] They've done ... most of them are ... I mean the wo certainly the ones on the little ... little boat trips and that, I mean, they have ... all it does is that ... it'll tell you there's some fish about, I mean, it doesn't
Alan (PS040) [1761] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [1762] tell you where to fish or
Alan (PS040) [1763] Oh no.
Barry (PS03W) [1764] depths or anything like that does it?
[1765] What they're doing is ... there's some fish down there somewhere.
Alan (PS040) [1766] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [1767] Cos that's the most frustrating thing about fishing is when you're like ... you know, you could be wasting that, you, you think to yourself like I could be wasting a whole, there's not a fish anywhere round here!
[1768] [laughing] You know, you could be sat here like an idiot today
Alan (PS040) [1769] Well that's it I've I've sat on
Barry (PS03W) [1770] for hours on end [] .
Alan (PS040) [1771] Jay hours on end in middle of night freezing
Barry (PS03W) [1772] Mm.
Alan (PS040) [1773] you know like [...] ... and I've caught nothing.
[1774] And you've
Barry (PS03W) [1775] Yeah.
Alan (PS040) [1776] thought well ... there's plenty of crabs ... in
Barry (PS03W) [1777] Yeah.
Alan (PS040) [1778] summer, take your bait
Barry (PS03W) [1779] Yeah.
Alan (PS040) [1780] but every time you throw out ... there's a crab on end of it.
[1781] You know
Barry (PS03W) [1782] Yeah.
[1783] Yeah.
Alan (PS040) [1784] you think, why does that crab always have to come my line.
Barry (PS03W) [laugh]
Alan (PS040) [1785] And all this sea yet it has to get my worm.
[1786] And same, like no fish, you think well there must be fish out there.
Barry (PS03W) [1787] Yeah.
Alan (PS040) [1788] Well it's, it's luck innit?
[1789] I don't know.
Barry (PS03W) [1790] I don't know what's going on.
[1791] I don't ... we got about three, three thirty in the morning, both of them went out to er ... canal somewhere up ... Dulgate, past Dulgate ... we set up and we'd ... we'd been fishing for about two and half hours it's aba ... about six thirty in the morning this old farmer comes up says er ... aye, aye lads, he said er ... I wouldn't bother it, they drained this area of the canal a few [laughing] months ago!
[1792] And we said, oh [] !
Alan (PS040) [1793] Yeah. [laugh]
Barry (PS03W) [1794] [laugh] ... [laughing] Sat there watching our floats for hours [] !
[1795] I mean
Alan (PS040) [1796] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [1797] I mean luckily you, you know, you'd gone on a car, with a car so it's a matter of throwing everything in the back and just going
Alan (PS040) [1798] That's it.
Barry (PS03W) [1799] somewhere else so ... could have sat there all bleeding day!
[1800] And not have known anything about it.
Alan (PS040) [1801] Aye.
[1802] I've had some lonely nights.
Barry (PS03W) [1803] Yeah.
[1804] Do you catch many eels, eels or anything, many eels?
Alan (PS040) [1805] No.
Barry (PS03W) [...]
Alan (PS040) [1806] Didn't catch as many this year ... as what I have done.
[1807] ... Phworgh!
[1808] The slimy things that they are.
Barry (PS03W) [1809] Yeah.
Alan (PS040) [1810] You get one of the lads that works with me, if he catches three of them he says well ... I'll have them for my dinner.
Barry (PS03W) [1811] Yeah.
[1812] I know.
[1813] I know.
Alan (PS040) [1814] They look horrible!
Barry (PS03W) [1815] A delicacy.
[1816] Mind you, I ate conga.
[1817] I, I erm, I was off the west co er ... on a holiday to the west coast of Ireland and we erm ... we're driving down the west coast and there was like some rocks and everything about, so we stopped and, you know, I looked [...] by a rock pools or something, and there's this ... and the rock pool is like mini-swimming baths, they were, you know, probably
Alan (PS040) [1818] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [1819] twelve foot long and about six or seven foot wide and about

Barry (PS03W) [2016] No?
Alan (PS040) [2017] It didn't have a fishy taste, it we like beef ... but ... I presume it's the way they've cooked it.
Barry (PS03W) [2018] Mm.
Alan (PS040) [2019] Cos they all put spices in and everything.
[2020] But er ... I definitely wouldn't have ordered it.

Alan (PS040) [2028] Why do I wanna
Barry (PS03W) [2029] sea fishing?
[2030] No, I mean I, cos I, you know I,i I ... spend a long time coarse fishing so I understand actual fishing ... for pleasure as opposed to
Alan (PS040) [2031] Yeah, yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [2032] like to eat, you know, there's not much you can catch coarse fishing that you can eat anyway ... erm but ... most people who go sea fishing do it ... to eat what they catch.

Alan (PS040) [2034] Aha.
[2035] Mm.
[2036] I, I do it ... I like, I like
Barry (PS03W) [2037] But why sea fi why, why does sea fishing interest you and not coarse fishing sort of thing?

[2520] Yeah.
Hugh (PS03Y) [2521] So er
Barry (PS03W) [2522] I mean, I think, I, I think the Empire legally is ... well I thought it was nine hundred

Barry (PS03W) [2524] [whispering] I can't think er [] ... I don't know.
[2525] I think it's nine hundred.
[2526] I mean you could cer you could

Hugh (PS03Y) [2529] Well yeah.
[2530] Even that Bob Monkhouse opened up ... quite
Barry (PS03W) [2531] Yeah.
Hugh (PS03Y) [2532] quite nice.

[2547] ... I mean the Sugar House, his capacity's
Hugh (PS03Y) [...]
Barry (PS03W) [2548] just been ... upped to eleven hundred I think.

Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3050] which worked ... reasonably well.
Barry (PS03W) [3051] Mm.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3052] I think one did it, you know what I mean
Barry (PS03W) [3053] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3054] tart it up and whatever.
Barry (PS03W) [3055] Mm.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3056] Erm, and what else worked well ... erm ... for a while, we were doing the women's darts.
[3057] And we had ... about three boards in here and we had a board in there.
[3058] I mean, there must be about seven boards in all.
Barry (PS03W) [3059] Right.
Barry (PS03W) [3060] Was that a competition was it?
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3061] No, it was a weekly ... thing.
[3062] Because, what they were doing, they were going to individual pubs
Barry (PS03W) [3063] Oh yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3064] Which couldn't cope
Barry (PS03W) [3065] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3066] with it, and th wha on their knock-outs and their cups and everything they
Barry (PS03W) [3067] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3068] wanted them all in one place.
[3069] So
Barry (PS03W) [3070] Aha
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3071] but erm ... there was a bit of jealousy in the la licensees started getting a bit er ... er
Barry (PS03W) [3072] Mm.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3073] because we're taking the trade away from them, you know ... they would have obviously had
Barry (PS03W) [3074] They were all the other pubs and the darts [...] ?
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3075] Yeah.
[3076] They'd have had a lot [...] .
Barry (PS03W) [3077] A bit of competition from other place.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3078] Well, at that stage we were talking to ... the men's darts secretary came along and was saying, he'd be quite interested in, in ... knocking up, you know, one of the Lancashire matches or something
Barry (PS03W) [3079] Oh!
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3080] like that.
[3081] It's a
Barry (PS03W) [3082] Well it's the stage for it int it?
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3083] Th thing is, you can put it on there, put it on sta you can er film it, and bang it on the big screen over there.
Barry (PS03W) [3084] Mhm.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3085] which is what I, I, in the [...] I had Eric Bristow and Maureen one night, and, I mean, it was just little dart board in the corner, but what I did was, I had a big screen like that ... and I just got ... student television service just to film it live and just throw it straight back up onto the big
Barry (PS03W) [3086] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3087] onto the thing, so ... you know, it was like ... well it's better than being at the telly.
[3088] I mean, it's better
Barry (PS03W) [3089] Mm.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3090] than
Barry (PS03W) [3091] Watching that.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3092] because th on the telly they haven't got those.
[3093] I mean, I'm
Barry (PS03W) [3094] Mm.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3095] amazed at the, on the world championships, they've only got those ... lighting up boards
Barry (PS03W) [3096] That's right.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3097] haven't they?
Barry (PS03W) [3098] That's right, yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3099] You know, and, I, instead of having ... I mean
Barry (PS03W) [3100] Screen up.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3101] why they don't just put a screen up
Barry (PS03W) [3102] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3103] that beats me, you know.
[3104] They do other sport etcetera.
[3105] See what I mean?
Barry (PS03W) [3106] Mm.
[3107] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3108] Well that's part of the course because, we need to sort, with Johnny's entertainment out with a roof.

Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3111] They've got two or three
Barry (PS03W) [...]
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3112] little leaks.
[3113] What it is is, the ventilation ... on the roof, ventilation shafts ... when the wind's driven ... it drives under and leaks through.
[3114] And we get it in two or three places, the toilets are, are the key one.
Barry (PS03W) [3115] And you don't see [...] with that.

Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3122] Concrete.

Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3135] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [3136] pints.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3137] You haven't got a cold shelf in here.

Barry (PS03W) [3184] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3185] in the corner.

Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3197] I mean I
Barry (PS03W) [3198] that floor.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3199] I would have thought ... to be honest, I would have thought you don't need any of that area
Barry (PS03W) [3200] No.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3201] carpeted.
Barry (PS03W) [3202] Just to, probably, very ends of [...]
Barry (PS03W) [3203] Don't you, you want your raised area, this
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3204] You want your two raised areas carpeted.
Barry (PS03W) [3205] Er, by, by the bar would you say it ... no not right in front
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [...]

Barry (PS03W) [3210] Yeah that
Barry (PS03W) [3211] Well
Barry (PS03W) [3212] but you don't really want it up to the bar if you're going to get
Barry (PS03W) [3213] No I'm saying that
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [...]
Barry (PS03W) [3214] you go right up to the bar
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3215] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [3216] you want it up to
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3217] See if you put artists on ... and you have this area as ... some kind of ... without carpet on
Barry (PS03W) [3218] Mm.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3219] in some ways, you haven't put, you can actually be, you know, dancing on this area.
[3220] I mean,tha that's the problem we got at the moment.
Barry (PS03W) [3221] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3222] On Mary's do, what we did, I put [...] soul machine over here where the screen was
Barry (PS03W) [3223] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3224] so people could dance on the er ... on the actual dance floor if they wanted.
[3225] Erm ... I mean, it's not ideal but it really, it worked.
[3226] It wor even, providing you haven't got a lot of ... if you've only got about a hundred people it's not too bad that cos it, it ... also creates a bit more atmosphere.
[3227] But, it's a better ... i it's not a ... bad designed place in a sense that, that ... I mean, it's a reasonable size room
Barry (PS03W) [3228] Mm.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3229] and you ca and three hundred people er, you can take three hundred quite
Barry (PS03W) [3230] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3231] easily ... I mean, you know, we've had four, fives ... hundred in.
Barry (PS03W) [3232] Mm.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3233] You can take three hundred quite easily.
[3234] But ... the erm ... the other thing about it is if you have a hundred people in ... it can be so also be a good atmosphere, you know?
Barry (PS03W) [3235] Mm.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3236] Yet,i it's not one of those rooms where, if
Barry (PS03W) [3237] No.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3238] you only get a hu yo you're struggling if you've only a got a hundred.
Barry (PS03W) [3239] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3240] Erm, what I'm, I've just arranged somebody to redo our speaker syste our original system with tannoys, we blew our tannoys ... speakers, and ... I didn't bother getting them replaced because we were going for a rock crowd ... so we just used Bernie and Nigel
Barry (PS03W) [3241] Mm.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3242] P A there.
Barry (PS03W) [3243] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3244] What I've got, is I've got four of these directional speakers, there's two up and two on here ... and then two big bass ones which sit on a floor back there.
[3245] And, so it's very loud on the dance floor but you can actually talk out, out here.
Barry (PS03W) [3246] Mm.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3247] Which I thought we need to redo if we're gonna get private bookings.
Barry (PS03W) [3248] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3249] Cos the one thing you always get when you've got a mixture of people, I mean, all thi this needs recovering basically as well.
Barry (PS03W) [3250] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3251] But I mean, that's not a big job it's just
Barry (PS03W) [3252] No.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3253] re relinoing it basically.
Barry (PS03W) [3254] Oh yeah. [...]
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3255] Oh yeah.

Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3259] Yeah, you got a smoke machine ... we, we, we would set in little, in a hole in the back.
Barry (PS03W) [3260] And all of these air conditioning valves are on?
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3261] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [3262] Mm.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3263] Actually I'm having the,a th I mean I can get, I'm getting our system back in operation.
[3264] It, it was gonna cost me a thousand but I've done a deal with a guy who'd got stuck with some in Manchester so it's gonna cost me five hundred which I'm getting done this Friday.
[3265] Erm ... to put a satellite ... system, to put a satellite in would be three hundred quid in total.
Barry (PS03W) [3266] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3267] So ... I mean it's ... that's only one ... that's only one good'un, good night using it innit, a year?
[3268] Pays for that.
Barry (PS03W) [3269] Yo you're light, the er ceiling ... could you not get away with covering the, get the lights a colour blue?
[3270] And er ... and ... you know, tidying up ceiling obviously [...]
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3271] Right.
Barry (PS03W) [3272] I mean, there's lots of bits and pieces you need for ... a
Barry (PS03W) [3273] I mean, if you just ... cover all the areas that were really
Barry (PS03W) [3274] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [3275] bad, er ... I reckon, I says, well what do you think ... yourself in, in, in
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3276] Well the, the big ... the single biggest cost is, is what we do with this ... a carpet area.
Barry (PS03W) [3277] Mm. [...]
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3278] That's our single biggest cost, cos ... as I say, I had three quotes in total, and they were all sort of between thirteen and twenty three.
Barry (PS03W) [3279] Yeah.
[3280] Thousand.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3281] Yeah.
[3282] But that's, having said that, that's to carpet all this area
Barry (PS03W) [3283] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3284] that back area I've just taken you through, that, the staircase, and the corridors out there.
[3285] I mean, that's the carpet ev I just said like ... I wanted a quote to carpet
Barry (PS03W) [3286] Mm.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3287] everywhere.
[3288] Erm ... what we were doing is,i what it was for, was for, for prospective buyers, they wanted erm ... a justification for
Barry (PS03W) [3289] Yeah.
[3290] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3291] the money they were gonna spend.
[3292] I mean, they wouldn't have spent that money.
[3293] But, they wanted ... written quotes for ... a justification more or less.
Barry (PS03W) [3294] Do you think it's better being like this?
[3295] Looking there, or is it better sort of, clearing your floor and get a wider dancing space and
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3296] Well it's quite, it's a reasonable size
Barry (PS03W) [3297] I know it's a fair size, but [...]
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3298] It's a fair size dancing
Barry (PS03W) [3299] you know
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3300] space actually, I mean, you get about a hundred people on here, it's, it's, it's alright.
[3301] In fact the, in fact it's,i at times it's too big.
[3302] That's, my one, I don't know how you'd ever get over it, but that's my one ... criticism of the thing is that sometimes when you walk in ... it's the first thing that hits you and unless people are dancing ... it creates a cold atmosphere.
Barry (PS03W) [3303] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3304] Erm
Barry (PS03W) [3305] I mean, if you've got your group on ... there's nothing better than having your floor there and are dancing on ... the floor at, at, in front of the group kind of thing like
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3306] Yeah, but I mean a a if you have any
Barry (PS03W) [...]
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3307] anything like a, a, a group takes all of this.
Barry (PS03W) [3308] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3309] If you have a
Barry (PS03W) [3310] That's right.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3311] a main group up, you know
Barry (PS03W) [3312] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3313] you're struggling to get
Barry (PS03W) [3314] But then if you did this floor space like
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3315] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [3316] we said
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3317] Oh yeah.
[3318] Yeah.
[3319] I mean, I, I actually don't think you need carpet on ... I mean I, I don't
Barry (PS03W) [3320] Oh no.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3321] think, I don't think you need any of this carpet, to be honest.
Barry (PS03W) [3322] [...] black [...] , would that look nice?
[3323] Black [...] carpet.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3324] I dunno.
Barry (PS03W) [3325] Ah, cos Peter was saying, I dunno, I dunno ... what the ... black [...] .
Barry (PS03W) [3326] Don't have to be black [...] , you just want, you want something that er ... I don't know really, you'd have to think about it wouldn't you?
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3327] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [3328] Yeah.
[3329] Oh yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3330] Could do with probably somebody who knows what they're doing on it.
Barry (PS03W) [3331] You want the carpet area full of seating
Barry (PS03W) [3332] Actually one thing Barry
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3333] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [3334] don't you?
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3335] That's right.

Barry (PS03W) [3338] down.

Barry (PS03W) [3342] You know, let them come down and give a quote
Barry (PS03W) [3343] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [3344] for whatever you're looking at
Barry (PS03W) [3345] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [3346] and pick what they thought, was the best thing you could do, and then don't, don't tell you but ... get them made.
Barry (PS03W) [3347] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [3348] You know, and like
Barry (PS03W) [3349] That's right.

Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3384] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [3385] ones that are took seriously.
[3386] But like you say, the floor can stand it and there's nice little corner ... or whatever int there?

Barry (PS03W) [3814] as a drinking area
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3815] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [3816] U yeah, I mean I
Barry (PS03W) [3817] during the day?
Barry (PS03W) [3818] yeah, well it was ... it was what I wanted to, it was what I wanted to, it was wanted to do initially, I mean, but then you have like ... so many ideas ... that
Barry (PS03W) [3819] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [3820] you know, you can't do them all in that sense, but if you had somebody ... somebody like Colin might be able to
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3821] Cos you only need, you only need ... him to drag ... sort of ... fifteen, twenty people in initially
Barry (PS03W) [3822] And five, ten of them
Barry (PS03W) [3823] And they'll all, they'll all be drinkers.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3824] Yeah.
[3825] But I mean ... sa ta so there's an at little atmosphere there anyway
Barry (PS03W) [3826] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3827] erm ... and then you can, I mean, well it gives you the opportunity to, you know ... bang in a bloody jazz band or whatever you wanna do in there somewhere
Barry (PS03W) [3828] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3829] and, and build it up like that.
Barry (PS03W) [3830] As you said, they haven't actually, you know, it'd be ... if you could get some sort of portable
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3831] Screening.
Barry (PS03W) [3832] screen that'd just shut it off.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3833] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [3834] So people don't feel as though they're sat in a wide ai wide open
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3835] No, I know, yeah.

Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3849] Yeah.
[3850] That's right.
Barry (PS03W) [3851] It won't cost any to give it a go would it?
Barry (PS03W) [3852] No.
[3853] If Colin's ... if Colin's up for it, it wouldn't at all.
[3854] I mean, it needs to perhaps ... perhaps they can do something for the first couple
Barry (PS03W) [3855] Oh yeah, need some sort of er
Barry (PS03W) [3856] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [3857] idea to get it going and get it off the ground even if you ... you put your beer on at, well I just thought of couple [...] Boddingtons put their ... they're ... they're gonna put their, they're gonna put there's at a pound a pint.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3858] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [3859] You know, just to attract some people, you know, approach the brewery, say look what about a few keg?
[3860] And if you get ... two or three keg ... put that money into free stock you know.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3861] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [3862] Say you [...]
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3863] Cleaner's not, the cleaner's not done behind here yet.
Barry (PS03W) [laugh]
Barry (PS03W) [3864] If you open it up, if you do get it open, and advertise it at Boddingtons a pound a pint, get them straight ... to come in.
[3865] You're not making a fortune at first, but once you get it going
Barry (PS03W) [3866] Mm.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3867] You said about traditional
Barry (PS03W) [3868] The only other thing is the [...] .

Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [...]
Barry (PS03W) [3875] [...] ... the fire exit [...]
Barry (PS03W) [3876] You could put it behind, you could feed it through the wall behind to where that

Barry (PS03W) [3889] Erm ... cos you'd tell the brewery wouldn't you?
Barry (PS03W) [...]
Barry (PS03W) [3890] The only other thing to do is, is do what er ... er, we did at one time and just get a ... bright beer and open it up and ... er, and then pull it.
[3891] And have it.
Barry (PS03W) [...] [laugh]

Barry (PS03W) [3934] That's right.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3935] All, all, one thing we haven't discussed is, is these ar these arrears int it, that we've got?
[3936] This, the rates
Barry (PS03W) [3937] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3938] is the biggest one int it?
Barry (PS03W) [3939] Right.
[3940] Right.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3941] Now, I don't know if it's worth asking
Barry (PS03W) [3942] Well I could
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3943] council to, if you could like lump it with the next year 's.
Barry (PS03W) [3944] El e Elliel, Elliel said that er they could probably ... twist the council's arm
Barry (PS03W) [3945] What's that for Barry?
Barry (PS03W) [...]
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3946] Well, this, you know we're on about this money
Barry (PS03W) [3947] Yes.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3948] well, there is, there is ba bad debts, you know which er
Barry (PS03W) [3949] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3950] I don't know if I've got them here.
Barry (PS03W) [3951] How much is that for?
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3952] Well it was er ... it was about
Barry (PS03W) [3953] Twenty two.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3954] here we are, that's it er ... it's rent which we we're gonna clear
Barry (PS03W) [3955] Mm.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3956] there's twelve for rates, and the twelve and, other two's ours which we're ... we
Barry (PS03W) [3957] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3958] can, we can stand on that.
Barry (PS03W) [3959] Mm.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3960] You've got, you've got like ... water rate, twelve hundred, er, rates, twelve ... but er, what we could try to do is approach them and see if we can lump it in with this year and that, obviously have to pay higher
Barry (PS03W) [3961] I mean, some of it is ... is the next two month anyway ... erm
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3962] Yeah.
[3963] But we we'd usually have ... no
Barry (PS03W) [3964] but
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3965] rents, er we've no er ... we've lease to pay back have we or owt like that?
Barry (PS03W) [3966] Oh and the other ... the other thing is, is, is by asking Fred for
Barry (PS03W) [3967] To pay.
Barry (PS03W) [3968] That's right.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3969] But even so, then ask Fred on the long term would be ideal.
[3970] Er, the biggest thing is for us is ... is making payable for you.
Barry (PS03W) [3971] Yeah.
[3972] I mean
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3973] At first
Barry (PS03W) [3974] we've not gone any further with this Fre with Fred because
Barry (PS03W) [3975] No.
Barry (PS03W) [3976] we're just leaving it ... so we sort ourselves out first on, on how
Barry (PS03W) [3977] Yes.
Barry (PS03W) [3978] we feel happy with it and
Barry (PS03W) [3979] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [3980] and whe how, how, whether you want ... Fred involved in, in what way.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3981] Well it's really that's needed be here, you know, if we ca
Barry (PS03W) [3982] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3983] if we can
Barry (PS03W) [3984] And
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3985] if we can resolve it ... with ... cos then you're getting summat on a different style of thinking to that, you know, I know Fred doesn't wanna be involved but then you've always got somebody, well we'll have to go and see Fred first.
Barry (PS03W) [3986] Mm.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3987] And, and I don't know.
Barry (PS03W) [3988] Yeah, you could work it
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3989] Go see Fred and he's probably got a few more pounds ready available than
Barry (PS03W) [3990] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3991] than we have.
Barry (PS03W) [3992] Oh yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3993] You know, that's the er
Barry (PS03W) [3994] That's right.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3995] bit difficult.
Barry (PS03W) [3996] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3997] And that's your er, cos er personally
Barry (PS03W) [3998] Oh, I've got the
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [3999] I'll say that it's not.
Barry (PS03W) [4000] accounts in various ... off-shore [laughing] islands and, and
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4001] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [4002] black bin liners in his back garden [] .
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4003] If we can sort him out with rates and, I don't know.
Barry (PS03W) [4004] If he can o if we can offset, if we can use all, if he'll [...] out time type of thing
Barry (PS03W) [4005] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [4006] with that
Barry (PS03W) [4007] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [4008] erm ... the oh er
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4009] You've gotta put an offer in and pay it so much a month haven't you or something and, and, and get it paid off over a period of time?
Barry (PS03W) [4010] And then you can do it without Fred and, really, with Fred is, is at the end of day you could pro ... proof pay load could go back to yourself and I, I E ... and ourselves, but by having him that other cut ... you're gonna be saying well ... it's all a bit more than ... your share.
[4011] I mean, from my point of view ... I don't think he's ever
Barry (PS03W) [4012] I don't think Fred'd be looking for anything as a return.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4013] No.
Barry (PS03W) [4014] Not in the shor
Barry (PS03W) [4015] I'd be quite happy to come
Barry (PS03W) [4016] not in the short term.
[4017] Not in the short term.
Barry (PS03W) [4018] you get tucked into it, and obviously there we'll keep it ... sort of low profile.
[4019] But giving it a good clean out ... and getting
Barry (PS03W) [4020] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [4021] it dus painted behind the things whatever, come on Sunday or whatever ... and just say that you might
Barry (PS03W) [4022] In return, yeah.
[4023] Just take a
Barry (PS03W) [4024] quite keen just to sort of get
Barry (PS03W) [4025] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [4026] mucked into it
Barry (PS03W) [4027] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [4028] just to save money
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4029] See if you can get
Barry (PS03W) [4030] but as long as, I say, the biggest thing from my point er ... is ... not to so lose money if you can do from where we're going.
Barry (PS03W) [4031] No.
Barry (PS03W) [4032] And use the fifteen grand to its best ... image in the way that you feel then you can turn round and run a club ... so it can get people in.
Barry (PS03W) [4033] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [4034] And we can get the lighting in.
[4035] Because that's what your best thing is
Barry (PS03W) [4036] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [4037] you've got the ideas ... and th the motions.
Barry (PS03W) [4038] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [4039] And for yourself, and what we don't wanna do is like I say, is spend money that ... is just gonna disappear and say shit!
[4040] We haven't really improved the pub's ... barrelage ... if goes away.
Barry (PS03W) [4041] No.
[4042] I mean,th the other aspect of the, of the fif ... the other aspect of the, the brewery and me that I was ... talking about, er I'm thinking about is that we we could do with ... you know, okay those,th those figures are ... I mean, unless they're really realistic it's gonna be ... you know, six months or so
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4043] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [4044] before we start getting up to the kind of figures where we can actually see a ... you know
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4045] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [4046] a profit each week
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4047] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [4048] a a, a, reasonably substantial profit, I mean
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4049] That's right, yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [4050] so, with the best will in the world it's going to be six months so let's ... so we need a little of breathing space
Barry (PS03W) [4051] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [4052] on that six months.
[4053] Now ... er, er obviously if, if we can, if we can get the money off the brewery cos ... you know, if we can get a little bit more
Barry (PS03W) [4054] That's right, yes.
Barry (PS03W) [4055] than we actually need to spend that ... that
Barry (PS03W) [4056] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [4057] enables us to ... you know, have that breathing space ... erm ... so we can start
Barry (PS03W) [4058] Well what, what we can, you know I say, he's offering us this fifteen unsecured if we can, mind you
Barry (PS03W) [4059] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [4060] I don't know if we can squeeze any more or what
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4061] I reckon
Barry (PS03W) [4062] but, but, you know if say well look, you know, we could do with twenty five and he turns round and [...] he might say well ... you know,yo he might say no
Barry (PS03W) [4063] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [4064] but we know we've got fifteen just to get us
Barry (PS03W) [4065] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [4066] going.
Barry (PS03W) [4067] Yeah.
[4068] Yeah.
[4069] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [4070] What he said then is look, you know ... hey he's, all you're saying really
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [...]
Barry (PS03W) [4071] is ah, if your barrelage is there then what we do is buy ... five or six barrels from Morecambe Bay Wines.
Barry (PS03W) [4072] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4073] You can soon get rid of those.
Barry (PS03W) [4074] You can say Morecambe Bay Wines and buy ... all his
Barry (PS03W) [4075] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [4076] cos what I, I just said to him I said look, I says a er sometimes I says it's an awkward time drop for us.

Barry (PS03W) [4078] Yeah well that's
Barry (PS03W) [4079] invoice.

Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4088] Because we ca we can live on thirty pound on barrel [...] can't we?
[4089] I think we can do.
Barry (PS03W) [4090] I'd like you to ... just purely myself, I'm not saying I'm ... right and you're not right and people like
Barry (PS03W) [4091] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [4092] my o my own personal view is if we just ... pay the fifteen and it's sort of off in there straight away and then spend ... but not to sort of say, well you can spend it and update it can't you?
[4093] But spend what we feel is gonna make the club
Barry (PS03W) [4094] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [4095] better image like you say
Barry (PS03W) [4096] Mm.

Barry (PS03W) [4403] See ... not that easy.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4404] No.
[4405] I'm just thinking of that exit there.
[4406] This, this is good.
[4407] I mean if you put that
Barry (PS03W) [...]
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4408] the nearest one
Barry (PS03W) [4409] You mean, it's a fire exit so that's the problem so you're not gonna be able to leave anything in it ... that would obstruct.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4410] But ... ah, so this, it's the actual fire exit for here int
Barry (PS03W) [4411] Mm.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4412] it?

Barry (PS03W) [4416] Yeah.
[4417] It goes out next to the cellar.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4418] I suppose like you say at nine thirty once the music starts no one 's gonna want to
Barry (PS03W) [4419] Oh er, if you put, if you put ... if you put wrought iron gates [...] gates decorated type of thing round there
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4420] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [4421] and then ... somebody stands there, two fifty ... that's what I were thinking, an admission from here.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4422] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [4423] And, and wrought iron it, yeah, you know.
Barry (PS03W) [4424] Well wrought iron'd look ... it'd look quite good for the functions trade as well cos you can get
Barry (PS03W) [4425] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [4426] the artificial plants up it
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4427] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [4428] and whatever else
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4429] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [4430] when you do
Barry (PS03W) [4431] Get [...] climbing plants
Barry (PS03W) [4432] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4433] You can get it, it will soon cover
Barry (PS03W) [4434] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4435] cover it actually.
Barry (PS03W) [4436] Yeah.
[4437] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4438] I mean close that area down.
Barry (PS03W) [4439] And that, that would do double job cos that would do the job of your blinds as well wouldn't it?
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4440] Yeah.
[4441] Yeah.
[4442] ... And then they'll cause the atmosphere rather than
Barry (PS03W) [4443] Mm.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4444] big open wide
Barry (PS03W) [4445] Mm.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4446] club.

[4452] They wouldn't come in that end. [...]
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4453] Well all you do right, you have gates
Barry (PS03W) [4454] Well I mean
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4455] then they're open ... so that at half nine ... you close them there, or at ten o'clock you close them there ... and you say when they come through ... if you're going out that
Barry (PS03W) [4456] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4457] way ... or whatever.
Barry (PS03W) [4458] Yeah.
[4459] I mean I ... I think you just have to ... but
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4460] It's something that you've gotta be
Barry (PS03W) [4461] You'd have to play it by ear I think.
[4462] Yes
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4463] thinking ahead.
Barry (PS03W) [4464] Yeah.
[4465] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4466] You know, you're thinking well
Barry (PS03W) [4467] Let's
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4468] at first you could just wrought iron it round and, and just give it that
Barry (PS03W) [4469] As you say, if somebody's been in there from bloody five o'clock and wants to stay till eleven
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4470] Well that's it.
Barry (PS03W) [4471] or twelve, then fine, let them.

Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4473] No.
Barry (PS03W) [4474] you know, I mean
Barry (PS03W) [4475] So you could either come in half eight, half nine or [...]
Barry (PS03W) [4476] That's right.
[4477] You know
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4478] But really, you know
Barry (PS03W) [4479] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4480] what you do?
[4481] At half nine you put someone on the door here to take money, anyone who comes in, whether they come into here or go into there
Barry (PS03W) [4482] Mm.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4483] anyone who's been drinking all afternoon [laughing] if you want to er, wander across []
Barry (PS03W) [4484] Yeah, I mean, what you, what you'd have to be careful of is, is sooner or later people'll catch on ... to
Barry (PS03W) [4485] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [4486] coming in at quarter past nine
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4487] Yeah.
[4488] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [4489] buying one extra drink and erm ... getting a ... you know ... cheaper than saving theirselves two and a half quid then.
Barry (PS03W) [4490] [...] pint they buy, and if they buy five pints
Barry (PS03W) [4491] [laughing] Yeah [] !
Barry (PS03W) [4492] they can have a three, er er ... a three pound voucher.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4493] Can you imagine Polly organizing that all!
Barry (PS03W) [laugh]
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [laugh]
Barry (PS03W) [4494] We're getting complicated aren't we?
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4495] Why can't we do it, to me, cost effective.
Barry (PS03W) [laugh]
Barry (PS03W) [laugh]
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4496] Torture.
Barry (PS03W) [4497] Complicating issues.
Barry (PS03W) [4498] I remember ... at the Uni when we used to give ... we used to put stamps on people, you know,
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4499] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [4500] for pass outs and that or anything
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4501] So does Broadway.
Barry (PS03W) [4502] and er ... I bloody, I said, I said in the end I've, what we ought to do is ... lop some part of their anatomy off, like a little digit or something then we can prove they've been in
Barry (PS03W) [laugh]
Barry (PS03W) [4503] eventually, after about two years when you get this sort of ... armless, legless cor
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4504] Oh oh! [laugh]
Barry (PS03W) [4505] body ... oh he's a good customer!
[4506] [laughing] We'll let him in for free!
[4507] He gets a free, free ticket [] !
Barry (PS03W) [4508] Well it's like, like a ... all you want to do is [...]
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [laugh]
Barry (PS03W) [laugh]
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4509] That's what you get, [...] ... you just gotta stand or you went downstairs to another bar
Barry (PS03W) [4510] Yeah,th the trouble is you're
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4511] and got a stamp
Barry (PS03W) [4512] you
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4513] and they would
Barry (PS03W) [4514] you, you're doing it in the same ... room
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4515] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [4516] aren't you?
[4517] That's the [...] .
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4518] That is as well.
Barry (PS03W) [4519] But I ... I dunno, I ... see it's not ... once you're u actually up here, looking ... I think it's different when you're up here looking back as when you're over there looking up here.
Barry (PS03W) [4520] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [4521] It's not quite as cold and empty as
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4522] If it got going you'd probably use mo ... another, another half of area, you know
Barry (PS03W) [4523] Yeah, yeah, you want
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4524] you don't wanna close it off.
[4525] But, like you say maybe just ... just a bit of wrought
Barry (PS03W) [4526] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4527] ironwork
Barry (PS03W) [4528] Yeah.
[4529] I think so.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4530] to just
Barry (PS03W) [4531] I think you do I think that would look good anyway ... and
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4532] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [4533] and it would also enable you to ... quickly and easily do something on the erm ... on the, on the private functions night to make it look ... different.
Barry (PS03W) [4534] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [4535] I mean, I wouldn't suggest putting
Barry (PS03W) [...]
Barry (PS03W) [4536] plants up and everything ... for our normal ... you know, rock nights, I mean we just ... have the wrought iron up and whatever, but
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4537] I mean, with them sort of then
Barry (PS03W) [4538] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4539] once you got erm tied into these you can
Barry (PS03W) [4540] Oh yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4541] do whatever to the thing.
Barry (PS03W) [4542] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4543] But it would give you affect.
Barry (PS03W) [4544] That's right.
[4545] I mean, those are just ... we just went out and chucked a few fucking trees down.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4546] They're not real then Barry?
Barry (PS03W) [4547] No, the trees are ... the er ... things tied on to them aren't.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4548] Oh.
Barry (PS03W) [4549] But er
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4550] Yeah.
[4551] ... I think, it's quite actually, it needs a bit of character.
Barry (PS03W) [4552] I mean, that'll cover
Barry (PS03W) [4553] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [4554] if you did that in quite a few places
Barry (PS03W) [4555] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [4556] throughout the room it would cover your cracks and your holes
Barry (PS03W) [4557] Ye
Barry (PS03W) [4558] and your, your [...] .
Barry (PS03W) [4559] I mean, what we initially wanted to do with all this was cover this whole area in, in greenery and have this as a sort of restaurant ta type.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4560] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [4561] I mean, again, it's ideas when you're sat
Barry (PS03W) [4562] It's ideas.
Barry (PS03W) [4563] planning, before you've actually moved in and get
Barry (PS03W) [4564] It is.
[4565] Yeah, yeah, that's right.
Barry (PS03W) [4566] and get ... and then, then you start
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [...]
Barry (PS03W) [4567] that's, that's the other thing when there's only two of you involved ... and you, we were opening for that first sort of eighteen months ... five, six days a week ... just keeping on top of a day to day business doesn't allow you to sit back
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4568] No, I know that.
Barry (PS03W) [4569] and expand it, and whereas, you know, that, that's one area that'd be great with having yo your involvement
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4570] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [4571] that you go in and say well ... you know
Barry (PS03W) [4572] It sounds like this sort of thing
Barry (PS03W) [4573] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [...]
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4574] When did you paint all this green?
Barry (PS03W) [4575] It was when I was working for Walt Disney, so it'll be ... two years ago.
[4576] Two years
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4577] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [4578] ago.
[4579] I was over in Belfast and I came back and it were green.
[4580] It was alri it's, it's actually lasted reasonably well considering it hadn't been
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4581] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [4582] for two years.
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4583] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [4584] But again, it was all done, it was all literally done in a weekend.
Barry (PS03W) [4585] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [4586] It was like a ... virtually an all night blitz job and ... so bits of it, you know, it wasn't like, totally completed, you know, you've got ... and as Scouse was doing some of it it was er ... [laughing] the paintwork leaves something to be desired in ... areas [] .
Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4587] Something there Barry ... little bit in there look.
Barry (PS03W) [4588] Just coming down a little bit.
[4589] They just need brushing back up.

Unknown speaker (KBDPSUNK) [4623] No.
Barry (PS03W) [4624] very much.

[4933] Well he's under a lot [...] or else he won't.
[4934] Still ... he won't come if he thinks there's any ... messing about.

Hugh (PS03Y) [whistling]
Terri (PS03X) [4946] I mean Labour can't win either way.
[4947] They've got to hope that it'll be resolved before then.

Barry (PS03W) [4949] Mm.
[4950] Well it's a
Terri (PS03X) [4951] It's a waste

[5152] It's Jean here.
[5153] I ... yes, I've just had my massive little row with The Savoy ... about the prices and they just wanted to charge us the normal price!
[5154] So I've said they can get stood on.
[5155] And I booked at the Claremont ... which is, twenty eight pounds.
[5156] Well, I'm not being prepared to be held to ransom by them.
[5157] And I'm, I'm faxing ... erm ... I'm sorry, I'm not gonna fax it, I'm just going to send a letter to national office ... about The Savoy in First Leisure.
[5158] Because they can't do this to delegates!
[5159] Cos they did it with you last year didn't they?
[5160] Mm.
[5161] ... Yeah.
[5162] Yeah.
[5163] Well, I think we should tell national office that this is, you know, this is happening and it's not on!
[5164] ... I've got ... I'll tell you what I've got, I've got for nineteen ninety two ... confere Register of Conference Accommodation, from national office ... whe where they tell you to book!
[5165] You know, cos I'd got it at a P P C as well, for national conference.
[5166] So I've actually two you see.
[5167] So ... erm ... I'm sending one back to national office saying, these hotels are sending confirmation at the full price for local government conference.
[5168] Now ... I, I've rung the Claremont and they've said, oh yes, it's the conference erm ... you know ... amount ... and we're very,appar we were, I was very lucky cos we got the last three rooms.
[5169] And she said, we're absolutely booked up!
[5170] But, you see Bob told me about it, he said, well he, you know ... booked at the Claremont because he'd had problems getting prices out of the others.
[5171] But, our union always stay at the Claremont and we've always found it, you know, okay.
[5172] But I'm, I'm not paying sixty five quid a night!
[5173] It's just stupid Francis!
[5174] Cos you're never in it.
[5175] I mean, you always go to ... you know, somewhere else don't you?
Hugh (PS03Y) [whistling]
Terri (PS03X) [5176] I didn't ask Francis, so just let me tell you ... erm ... they were when I went, it's A, B, D, E, and it's got all the letters next to them.
[5177] You know, they say there's a full range of facilities ... and ... I'm just looking ... A is central, bedroom, I'll tell you, I'll, I'll, I'll, we'll whiz through them.
[5178] A is central heating, C is car parking, D is ... street car parking, E is special diets catered for, F, tea and coffee making facility, G is television in bedrooms at no extra charge ... I is for [...] answering and J ... [...] ... K, I've, I'm, just to go all through this, disabled facilities, L ... separate [...] ... M ... bedrooms available with private telephones in, it's N, number of bedrooms available with ... private bathroom and toilet or shower and toilet.
[5179] And that's what it says.
[5180] It was, was when I went Francis.
[5181] Night porter, Q is lifts to all floor, and S is swimming pool ... and I know there's a swimming pool because ... not that I ever used it, but ... ma it, it was when I booked Francis.
[5182] It's right on the prom on the corner on, on North Prom.
[5183] It's not far from the Imperial Francis.
[5184] So ... but it was erm ... just go on that bit of the prom, it's huge!
[5185] It's a huge hotel on the corner.
[5186] You can't miss it.
[5187] I'll, I'll give you the o the address anyway.
[5188] Erm, two hundred and seventy North Prom.
[5189] ... Yeah.
[5190] Two seventy North Prom.
[5191] Erm, and you just say what ... yeah, two seventy North Prom.
[5192] It's, it's pa just past, if you keep going past the Pembroke ... it's there.
[5193] But erm ... that's right, going out.
[5194] Yes.
[5195] It's just past there.
[5196] You can't lose it Francis, cos it's one of the major hotels.
[5197] Yeah.
[5198] They've got, they've got lots of bars, there's a bar in the basement and there's bars upstairs, and a dance floor and a swimming pool and ... I'm sure it will Francis.
[5199] I mean ... yeah, well I don't blame him.
[5200] But it says ... number of bedrooms available with private bathroom and toilet, or shower and toilet.
[5201] There are very few hotels of this standard that don't have showers and toilets.
[5202] So ... it's twenty eight Francis, which is, I think is ... yes.
[5203] Yes.
[5204] Well, it doesn't matter where we go to eat does it?
[5205] And we, can go and eat wherever we want.
[5206] Oh!
[5207] But ... th you can have bed and breakfast and evening meal if you want.
[5208] Erm, but generally,ye I mean cos Eileen and I go to a [...] ... we nearly always go somewhere like Carriages or ... you know, somewhere Italian ... which is, you know, it might, it all depends on what Jim's eating at the time.
[5209] But, but ... you can't go wrong, there's plenty to eat in Blackpool can you?
[5210] In fact, I'm trying to think of a place that erm ... we once went when we ... at regional conference, it was behind the Claremont somewhere.
[5211] It was a ... it was a ... little Italian restaurant with about forty six ... and we went at regional conference and it was astounding!
[5212] It was a really brilliant chef!
[5213] I'll try and get Bob to find the ... the number of it.
[5214] Cos that was really ... a really nice place.
[5215] But, you wouldn't have expected to find it where you found it.
[5216] No.
[5217] You know the road behind the promenade?
[5218] It was on that road.
[5219] And we only found it by chance, you know how you go off to ... think oh I'll, I'll go and find a coffee or something, and we found this restaurant at lunch time and had a coffee there ... and we looked at the menu and, you know, we, we couldn't believe it!
[5220] Yeah.
[5221] Well I'll try, I'll try and get Bob to remember the name of it.
[5222] Alright.
[5223] And so I'll see you when we get there Francis.
[5224] I said we'll a probably arrive early afternoon.
[5225] So ... no ... doesn't ... well you know what he'll be like, he'll be messing about all day.
[5226] But I know Kinnock's speaking at four isn't he?
[5227] So we ... I want to ... Yeah.
[5228] Yeah.
[5229] Oh well he'll have to be then.

[5236] You and Jim are staying.
[5237] And I know that Bob and Sue have booked at the Claremont so there'll be quite a few of us there.
[5238] So, I'll, I'll keep an eye on us.
[5239] And I'll go and have a look at your room.
[5240] [laugh] ... Just to make sure everything's alright ... before he gets there.
[5241] Right.

Barry (PS03W) [5371] Well you probably, I mean you, you as, you as well, so ... I mean, you probably won't
Terri (PS03X) [5372] No he's
Barry (PS03W) [5373] be able to get there till this evening and you probably won't be able to see him will you?
Terri (PS03X) [5374] No.
[5375] Well a as long as he knows I'm looking for him.
[5376] They erm ... wa when we to we, we were staying at the Claremont ... and ... I don't, oh, I think we just decided we'd find a cup of coffee.
[5377] It was M S F thing, we were with Margaret about the ... M S F.
[5378] And ... said, oh, let's go and find a cup of coffee ... but, have a bit of a walk and walk down to conference but we'll not walk down the prom
Barry (PS03W) [5379] Mm.
Terri (PS03X) [5380] we'll walk down the road at the back ... and we'd only just turned round the corner from the Claremont and we found this restaurant ... and it was, it was an absolutely brilliant chef, really nice restaurant, really high quality ... and it was ... was ... quite reasonable price, it wasn't cheap.
Barry (PS03W) [5381] Mm.
Terri (PS03X) [5382] So, when we found this we thought ooh, this is alright!
[5383] You know, we'll ... so we've been quite a few times since, but I cannot think of the name of it.
[5384] You see, Jim doesn't like, I mean, we'd go to Carriages probably ... cos it's a ... a proper Italian
Barry (PS03W) [5385] Yeah.
Terri (PS03X) [5386] that absolutely reeks with garlic and ... all the rest of it.
[5387] Well ... that means Jim will pull a face!
[5388] Or he'll start going
Barry (PS03W) [5389] Oh, this big international financier!
Terri (PS03X) [5390] Oh!
[5391] No!
[5392] Not, I mean, is the, when it comes down to food ... wi he's a traditionalist.
[5393] So we've always got to find somewhere to eat that's
Barry (PS03W) [5394] You're gonna be pushed getting, you know, roast beef and Yorkshire in Brussels aren't you?
Terri (PS03X) [5395] God knows!
Barry (PS03W) [5396] Steak and kidney pie!
Terri (PS03X) [5397] You're joking!
[5398] Cos everybody sort of, just try to think, think of in Brussels.
[5399] Why they go, they go to er ... a six course sort of have as much main course as you like.
[5400] It's a ... a ... a re a really nice restaurant ... but you can pick all your food raw ... and they just, there's a chef cooking, and you just get one of these plates, you can have as many helpings as you want, they serve you a cold starter and a hot starter ... but there's ... a buffet that's about ... half the size of our club ... and one side of it it's all ... fish on a wet fish slab, and steak, and veal, and chicken and ... so there's every sort of meat you can think of, and you can pick a wooden platter full of it, so you go and give it the chef with this number that they give you ... and then they come serve you with whatever you want.
[5401] And you can have as many helpings of whatever you want.
[5402] And the salad stuff ... and fresh fruit and all that sort of thing, takes ... about the full length of our bar up ... you know, you, you couldn't think of a salad that isn't there.
[5403] But you can't, and there's, then there's loads of hot veg.
Barry (PS03W) [5404] Mm.
Terri (PS03X) [5405] There's no vegetables you can't mention.
[5406] I think it's about twenty quid a head, but you can actually have as many meals as you want, or as many puddings as you want.
Barry (PS03W) [5407] Yeah.
Terri (PS03X) [5408] It's ... it really is ... really very, very good.
[5409] The Labour Party came to ... to use that quite a lot.
[5410] Because ... they've got ... big seating areas as well, where they put, sort of eight tables together and all your party can sit together.
Barry (PS03W) [5411] Mm.
Terri (PS03X) [5412] When we were there ... Stan was with us and he'd ... been a few times to Brussels ... to with the Labour Party and, and he said oh it's great!
[5413] Because ... usually you go off to a restaurant and if there's twenty of you ... you can't sit together can you?
Barry (PS03W) [5414] No.
[5415] No.
Terri (PS03X) [5416] But, he said, this restaurant makes a particular thing of ... seating big parties.
[5417] It was a brilliant restaurant!
[5418] Really ... really ... nice.
[5419] So ... you know
Barry (PS03W) [5420] Sergio's going to erm ... erm ... one, some Cubs visit to London at er ... half term.
Terri (PS03X) [5421] Baden Powell House?
Barry (PS03W) [5422] Yeah, but the
Terri (PS03X) [5423] Mary took it.
[5424] It's brilliant!
[5425] Absolutely great!
Barry (PS03W) [5426] And er, so she said ... she, she wants to take the last couple of days away
Terri (PS03X) [5427] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [5428] so she's, her aunty's going to Dublin, so I got these things and they were really cheap actually.
[5429] There's the train fare from here to Holyhead return, the ferry, transfers to their hotel ... the best hotel in Dublin, The Burlington
Terri (PS03X) [5430] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [5431] is absolutely stupendous!
[5432] Two nights bed and breakfast, full Irish breakfast, which means [laughing] you won't need to eat until the evening [] !

Barry (PS03W) [5435] Erm ... train, free bus passes round Dublin, includes their bus fares and, and train on those sort of metro type thing
Terri (PS03X) [5436] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [5437] they have in Dublin ... all for eighty five quid!
Terri (PS03X) [5438] Eh?
Barry (PS03W) [5439] I know.
Terri (PS03X) [5440] Why?
Barry (PS03W) [5441] The only problem is, that the hotel that Mary's like, ah!
[5442] This looks beautiful.
[5443] Cos I, I, that second hotel, [...] hotel, the only thing, is the Burlington.
[5444] And I daren't, I'm not gonna tell her, but I, I, I'm trying to say, well, it's a little bit out, it's in a park and er,th th but it looks gorgeous!
[5445] I said, yeah I know.
[5446] And it was, where they had their honeymoon.
Terri (PS03X) [laugh]
Barry (PS03W) [5447] So I'm going, oh no!
[5448] Not for [...] ... just er ... Siobhan, and sister-in-law, erm ... is the head of Town and Travel and, Manchester
Terri (PS03X) [5449] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [5450] Town and Travel, and she got ... the ... presidential suite at the Burlington which is like a, you know, I mean, erm, it's absolutely gorgeous!
[5451] And it was, it was about two hundred pounds a night and got it for ten pounds a night.
[5452] [laugh] ... That was about, well, ten years ago, when ... well ... well it's really appropriate.
[5453] So I think, well ... this is a, this is actually on O'Connell Street, that's right in the centre.
[5454] But I mean, that's actually th th one, one of the, that was the, the, the other ones like four star hotels were on O'Connell Street which actually opens [...] ... only seventy seven quid.
Terri (PS03X) [5455] I know.
Barry (PS03W) [5456] That's including all that travel and
Terri (PS03X) [5457] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [5458] and ... I mean, it's incredible though!
Terri (PS03X) [5459] Mm.
Barry (PS03W) [5460] And it's something like twenty quid for an extra night if you want to stay, the problem is the Holyhead ferries, they're dreadful!
[5461] You know
Terri (PS03X) [5462] Yeah.
Barry (PS03W) [5463] one gets you in at seven fifteen which means ... you're only really getting one day

Barry (PS03W) [5474] Yeah.
[5475] Yeah.
Terri (PS03X) [5476] there's no point in you going
Barry (PS03W) [5477] No.

[5628] The reason he's married to her ... I mean, even [...] .
[5629] I could, I could really throw the dirt at them ... by saying that I'll, you know, if there is a conspiracy ... there's, a person here who's been involved in a very iffy part of the budget, who all of a sudden after ten years of ... slagging off the town clerk, all of a sudden he's totally on the town clerk's side, together with ... Councillor .
[5630] Why?
[5631] The only person who's involved in both, allowing the town clerk to take these decisions, without any ... interference at all
Barry (PS03W) [5632] Mm.
Terri (PS03X) [5633] and now conspiring with a senior employee of the council, and of course, [...] .
[5634] Just not so.

Barry (PS03W) [5641] Mm.

Barry (PS03W) [5650] Mm.
Terri (PS03X) [5651] take.
Barry (PS03W) [5652] Mm.
Terri (PS03X) [5653] First opportunity, real opportunity he gets ... he's ... doing everything the town clerk wants him to do.
Barry (PS03W) [5654] Yeah.
Terri (PS03X) [5655] I just, I, I, honestly Barry, I've got to the stage where I believe in this conspiracy [...] .
Barry (PS03W) [5656] Mm.
[5657] ... Well certainly some people want ... some answers want to be given on this ... budget, er me as well, I mean, he can't just suddenly say
Terri (PS03X) [5658] Well
Barry (PS03W) [5659] it's all been sorted out, don't worry about it.
Terri (PS03X) [5660] Well ... I think it will be really stupid.
[5661] [...] ... But I shall say ... Dave ...
Barry (PS03W) [5662] And how long [...] ?
[5663] Well I park
Terri (PS03X) [5664] I'll put
Barry (PS03W) [5665] er
Terri (PS03X) [5666] I'll drop you off.
[5667] Cos I want to go home and [...] , I've got to home cos I've ... I've a stack of paperwork on my table.
[5668] I'm not gonna be able to set off much later on remember because
Barry (PS03W) [...]
Terri (PS03X) [5669] There's no point in me getting
Barry (PS03W) [5670] Nope.
Terri (PS03X) [5671] I'll have to go up to shop to get some shopping cos there's ... nothing to eat in the house.
[5672] So I'll have to do something [...] .
[5673] ... Alright Barry? [...]
Barry (PS03W) [5674] I just wonder what on earth they're, they're playing at with ... ha, cha cha cha cha cha cha.
[5675] You know, I just don't understand what they're playing but th you know
Terri (PS03X) [5676] They
Barry (PS03W) [5677] they can only be doing ... damage to th to the election chances I mean
Terri (PS03X) [5678] Well they
Barry (PS03W) [5679] they can't be achieving anything else!
Terri (PS03X) [5680] I mean saying things like ... a successor has already been identified.
[5681] I mean ... it's just stupid!
[5682] Cos the general view in Morecambe isn't what they say it is.
Barry (PS03W) [5683] Yeah, but it gives the impression there's a split group innit?
Terri (PS03X) [5684] Well, you give the impression of a ... a faction in the party, now ... I could, I could serve this faction quite easily ... to ... Mike who'd give me a lot of say ... if I said, you know,th the ... the plot thickens, you know, here's a town
Barry (PS03W) [5685] Yeah.
Terri (PS03X) [5686] hall employee
Barry (PS03W) [5687] Yeah.
Terri (PS03X) [5688] always an opponent of the town clerk ... also now ... erm ... trying to cause problems.
Barry (PS03W) [5689] Mm.
Terri (PS03X) [5690] I mean, that really does make the plot thicken ... doesn't it?
Barry (PS03W) [5691] Yeah.
Terri (PS03X) [5692] I mean, why was Dave being quoted for [...] , what has it got to with Dave ?
[5693] He's not an officer of the constitut he isn't a treasurer, he isn't secretary, he's, he's nothing ... as far the constituency's concerned.
[5694] They, if they want any quotes why don't they go and see chairman, who's Terry?
Barry (PS03W) [5695] Yeah.
Terri (PS03X) [5696] I mean, this is them deliberately saying things to their friends ... and deliberately stirring it.
[5697] They, oh!
[5698] Because, I mean, I know where it's coming from, some of it's coming from Stanley , who, who thinks ... if I don't stand down it will damage Ruth's chances.
[5699] That's not Ruth's own view of it.
[5700] Well it, and I don't think with the News of the World round their necks they can afford to start playing silly people.
[5701] Because I'm, you know, if they sa if they keep crossing me the way they are, quite frankly I'm ... you know, willing to make remarks myself.
[5702] Although I don't want to do damaging things, but ... I don't see why I should be the person con cons constantly getting the flack from a group of people who were ... you know.
Barry (PS03W) [5703] Yeah.
Terri (PS03X) [5704] Who are genuinely trying to do damage to the party.
[5705] ... So do you want me to call at the 's now?
Barry (PS03W) [5706] Yeah.
[5707] There's, may as well.
[5708] ... Well, don't know.
[5709] Well it doesn't really matter, I'll, I'll be ... I mean, what, so ... I mean there's ... except for seeing Anne there's nothing more to do is there?
Terri (PS03X) [5710] Well except to start getting that rubbish cleared away.
Barry (PS03W) [5711] Well I can't put it away.
[5712] Don't want a pile in the cellar when carpet delivery comes.
Terri (PS03X) [5713] No, but I pu put it next to the lift ... and as soon as Hughey comes ... put it outside and when I come back I'll take it away.
Barry (PS03W) [5714] No you won't cos I'm meeting Ellial at, at half three.
Terri (PS03X) [5715] Well I mean, I should be back for half past two.
[5716] I mean, if you want to just put it in that dustbin place and we'll take it tomorrow.
Barry (PS03W) [5717] Mm.
Terri (PS03X) [5718] You know, the washing up machine and everything, all, all of that needs cleaning out, all behind the bar needs cleaning.
[5719] We're giving people a very bad impression if we're opening tonight and ... nothing's been cleared up.
[5720] I think I'll go for it Barry.
[5721] I'll, I'll go and see where he is, and say, you know ... That washing up and everything wants doing before tonight so you, so if you're gonna say ... oh, we're open tonight and the place still looks like a pig stye!
[5722] It ain't gonna give a very good impression.
Barry (PS03W) [5723] Well he's not gonna want to, he's not,sha I mean he's ... it's not a meeting to look around the place is it really?
Terri (PS03X) [5724] Well it is.
[5725] That's what they're coming for.
[5726] That's one of the things Richard is coming for, to look round.
[5727] We'll come and have a good look round, I've never seen it.
[5728] ... I mean, er, you know what that's to do with don't you?
[5729] The repairs notice.
[5730] Even if we only got all those old tickets and things into green bags and started cleaning that out it would ... it would look as though we're making some ... effort.
[5731] Er, if I can get ... the and get him to come in ... reasonably soon, you know, I'll ring you and tell you whether he's in.
[5732] If we could get him to come in reasonably quickly ... you could get all that stuff down and bagged up and we could get rid of it couldn't we?
Barry (PS03W) [5733] Which which tickets are you talking about?
Terri (PS03X) [5734] Well all the old tickets and stuff, I mean, alright

[5968] Erm, going to somehow, at the moment we're thinking of ... well Jean'll wanna do it, but I'm ... I'm thinking of doing some kind of ... I mean, we're agreed on what we're gonna do, but it's how we do it, I want some ka er, some kind of grilling around the top, the cocktail bar area, so you can open it as a, as a bar, and it'll have a sort of atmosphere in itself, so we open that as a pub type of thing, you know.
