    I have just realised that the Sun newspaper is doing vouchers which start last week for free tickets to legoland. Its my sons birthday in July and we had planned to go to Legoland so it makes sense to save £using these vouchers. The offer runs into this week but sadly I missed the last weeks...
  5. Southend's mooted move to Milton Keynes

    Morning good people of SZ, A trip down memory lane to the dark days of the early to mid-1980s, if you will. I'm trying to do some digging for an article for next month's All At Sea.

  10. A team we call United

    For the older members out there, back in the late 60's, early 70's a couple of brothers, the Bushells made a film called 'A team called United'. I remember watching a reel to reel version in the Shrimpers club as a young lad. I have hunted everywhere to see see if the footage is anywhere on...

They will be about 160 paged of A4 black/white - so around 320 odd sides in total. Don't need binding of anything...

Let...
