My grandma, Mary Eddleston, was a friend of Kitty and Jimmy and may have worked in the bar in the 50's.

When they went on holiday to the Isle of Man, Kitty would send my grandma Manx kippers through the post.

I also remember their dog, kept in the rear yard and known by all the kids in the area as Sandy Gaskell.
