    I had a long chat to Jon on Tuesday night.

    We'll be along on Saturday night for the reopening.

    Ding Dong the bitch is gone and has hopefully lost a small fortune along the way.

    Having said that they are giving away free beer next week so if passing might give them another chance. Cheapskate moi.

    Wow, that must have been a fairly spectacular downturn in less than 9 months??
    I did ask on your thread 'Boy from the Baum no longer' whether 'Any chance of a reduced price buy-back after custom falls off a cliff?' - could Simon buy back in, maybe via surrogate purchaser?

    Not really a surprise as 90% of the regulars left.

    Unlikely Simon could have done anything as he hasn't got any money either.

    Jon is backed by Ben & Craig at The Flyer, so it's in good hands.

    I've only known Jon about 10 years whereas I've known Ben for nearly 20.
