Rumours of a certain sock seller being barred from the forthcoming Northern Light Fund Quiz Night - taking place on March 17th at The Lowry Hotel, Manchester - have been dismissed as pure speculation (and hope, by some people). However, reports of reinforced furniture being drafted in for the evening have yet to be confirmed.
The Annual Roy Lowe Post Christmas Diet, didn’t go entirely to plan, as one participant actually put weight on. Guess who? Let's just say one of the Union Jack suits has had to go in for repair after a recent splitting incident...
Although you never saw David Scott (Rainbow Productions) and his Olympic mascots Wenlock & Mandeville in the same room at the same time at the recent Spring Fair, he does go to great lengths to point out that it isn’t him walking around inside the suits (he’s usually performing as Peppa Pig).
Talking of Wenlock & Mandeville, Golden Bear has kindly donated a large mascot of each to The Light Fund, each have been signed by Olympic Legends Johnathan Edwards and Lord Coe.
