    No way!! Esther had one of the most pure and exotic voices of her era, they were capable of real beauty. Shame they came to be known for one piece of novelty fluff!

    Crook name change

    The Mill House has ceased to be a house and is now just 'The Mill'.

    Also, Bar 56 is the Crook Hotel.

    And Jellys is Elliot's Bar & Restaurant.
