Remember Ranch Hands?

Looking through my old box of bygones, I have come across a record sleeve (no record) called Cowboy Favourites by the Bill Shepherd & the Ranch Hands on a 33rpm.

It has nine songs on it and was recorded for Vivo, Families of Rainbow Records, 28/30 Hanway Street, London W1.

I just wondered if anyone could remember them?

I am also looking at a catalogue I have had since 1959 called Let’s Talk About Tankards.

I worked as a buffer/metalsmith for the late great Arthur Wentworth who compiled it with Albert Jackson, Albert Webster and Cooper Fenton, all great smiths in their time.

I have just retired as a buffer and I have worked with some greats,including Keith Palmer, who was a top buffer in my view.

I also worked with Malc, Jed and Colin.

I hope they are still with us.

Woodseats library

I agree with the figures for Woodseats Library, but the reason it has dropped 89.8 per cent down is that we don’t have a library at Woodseats at the minute.

It has been knocked down and is in the process of being rebuilt and will not be ready for another year.

It is being built with a medical centre on Chesterfield Road to replace the doctors’ surgery on Cobnar Road.
