The Thompson Brothers on Holidays, Raleigh HQ and Aretha Franklin

4 September 18 words: Leftlion

Nottingham's most opinionated grocers on...

We’re off for our annual holiday in paradise; the The Swan Hotel in Southwold, Suffolk. We’re planning on short walks, fish, chips and lots of beer. We’d like to stay for a week, but unfortunately there’s only so much you can afford on a greengrocer’s wage.

Raleigh HQ is the UK’s 400,000th listed building
We bought our first bikes, Raleigh Wayfarers, from there in the seventies. They should open the place to the public. It’d be nice to see them building bikes there too. They used to make millions of them.

Aretha Franklin
She was a legend and she had an amazing voice. It’s not really a big shock as we’ve seen a lot of pop stars die in the last few years like David Bowie, George Michael, Prince and that actor who was in Die Hard and the Harry Potter movies. What was his name again? Rick Wakeman?

We have a favour to ask…

LeftLion is Nottingham’s meeting point for information about what’s going on in our city, from the established organisations to the grassroots. We want to keep what we do free to all to access, but increasingly we are relying on revenue from our readers to continue. Can you spare a few quid each month to support us?
