Spennymoor Rink - a Memory of Spennymoor.

I was interested in Doris's memory of the rink in that her boyfriend at the time was George Pennington, sax player. I knew Geoge and we played together from time to time in dance bands at the Rink. One band I remember was Bob Forbet. I played drums. Also another local band was Fernley Mitchell. It all seems light years ago but, yes, great memories. I remember one Friday night there was a group turned up to play in the interval who turned out to be the Shadows. They were just starting out. The guitar was just starting to be a recognised instrument and one or two of the older musicians in the band we saying 'Well, it will never catch on'. Thank you Spennymoor Rink for the great memories.
