supplied by Karen Sweatman

Karen Sweatman… This was Christmas Eve. Centre Page appeared on Christmas Eve in the Yelton for a few years on the trot.

Andrew Reid McDuffie… Hold on……Is 1997 a long time ago now???

Karen Sweatman… Still seems like yesterday to me!

Andrew Reid McDuffie… Me too!

Dizz Corinne Ryder… I remember them from Mr Cherry’s in St.Leonards!

Gerry Fortsch… Dave was in hospital with my dad and they stayed friends. I knew him from The Suspect.

Robert Searle… Nice to see another photo of Dave Easton Centre Page

Angela Jordan… My Nan and grandad worked there years ago

Lance Collins… Worked a few times with Centre Page. Good days.

Mick O’Dowd… Loved that place. Good bands/atmosphere and a really great selection of people and assorted weirdos!

Karen Sweatman… I’m delighted to say that I fit the weirdo category!

Lance Collins… We have all grown up to socially acceptable responsible adults

Dave Nattress… Played the Yelton once with The Prisoners. Good gig. Dear old mate, Andy Leaney – (RIP) broke a string and then cut his finger, somehow, blood everywhere but like a trooper kept playing. But then Seasick Steve used to do well with 3 strings!

Gerry Fortsch… Always take new skin to a gig.

Do you remember when Quality Street tins were this big?

Martin Richter… a tin would last until easter !

Jim Breeds… But not the chocolates.

Peter Fairless… Drums!

Dennis Torrance… Somewhat smaller now like chocolate bars but quite expensive as well

Ernest Ballard…  Used to end up with hard gold wrapped toffees in the bottom nobody wanted

Dennis Torrance… I would have had them lol

Chris Baker… Send them to me! I love them!

Lloyd Johnson… Reminds me of 1950s/60s Christmas’s

Andy Pilkington… Good times! brother bit into one of the purple ones and hazelnut had not been shelled chipped a tooth, they sent him £10 and another tin of QS

Alan Esdaile… I prefer Celebrations now.

Pauline Richards… Yes not so many toffees

Roger Simmonds…  I still have one full of odds and sods now!! I loved the fudge ones!

Jacquie Hinves… My favourites are the green triangles!
