Yes they are still playing.
I booked them for my daughters 40th birthday party.

I know one, Danny, personally he is the grandson of one of my oldest friends.

Great band

Chesterfield Discussion / the buddies r&r band

Does any forum member know if the chesterfield band the buddies are still going, a few years ago i had just spent a five day holiday at Bognor butlins, Bognor i might add is in my opinion is the most awful resort i have ever been to (the clue is in first three letters of its name), the day after i got back i went into town and the Buddies were playing opposite Mcdonalds and they were really good, the reason i mentioned butlins is that the buddies were far and away more entertaining than any of the so called quality entertainment we had seen there.  we also saw them at the now defunct wheatsheaf and have not heard of them playing locally since.

I booked online for the wheel and encountered problems. The money was taken from out account but we didn't get the emailed tickets.
It was sorted - eventually  ::)

Went into town last Thursday and thankfully the longer range forecast was right for a sunny day even if cold and blustery.
The pods swung about a bit at the top but no worries on that.

Really enjoyed seeing our town from up there and I thought £4.00 ( concessionary ) was pretty good.

We made a day of it actually and stayed in town for coffee and cake after our ride, did a bit of shopping then walked down to the Cine-world complex and had lunch in one of the eating places there.
Lovely day!  :)

I hope others did the same and put some money into the tills of our local businesses, I think it is a good idea but have read moans about it - the Borough got this one right in my opinion!  (y)

By walking away from the, 'problem', aren't you just making the situation worse  :-X ::)
i understand where you are coming from and it is a valid point, however there is no problem, you have gone into a shop and you have made your purchase and paid for your goods, where in that simple action is YOUR problem ?, in this instance any problem that arises from alarms sounding is the stores problem and not your responsibility or obligation to resolve. if a person wishes to subject themselves to questioning or a search by store security staff it is thier lawful right to do so, equally a person who is aware of his rights decides to refuse such a search also has a lawful right to do so, i am merely appraising people of thier legal rights, and it is up to the idividual to decide what he or she feels is the best course of action in a given scenario. i am not telling people to follow my lead i am just informing them they have a choice.

Never had this happen - yet, but I suppose the answer is to make sure the tags are taken off  ;)
the problem is that some of the tags look like raised sticky labes and these are not taken off, they are supposed to be deactivated at the checkout but these labels are not always apparent, a case in point is that when i took my son to asda living to buy some lego we went to the checkout and paid for the items and it was not imediately apparent that there was any security tags on the boxes we had purchased, as we were leaving the inevitable happened as it had so many times before the alarm went off and my son said to me arn't we going to wait for someone, being tired and thisty i said it was not my problem and made towards our parking spot, as we got about 30 yards from the store a female security guard came out of asdas main entrance and started shouting at us across the car park and being abusive demanding quite wrongly that we HAD to come back into the store to have our bags searched, i informed her that had she have been less abusive i would have gladly come back into the store however fighting fire with fire i instructed her to s*d off. it is this incident which was the turning point for me as it was there and then i decided that i would no longer take anymore of these people trampling over my civil liberties as a result of a machine which by asda customer services own admission are tempremantal and prone to triggering when nobody is near the damn things at best. you can count yourself lucky you have not been stopped, here is a case in point, i was leaving tesco in the pavements one day and as i left the store in the middle of other customers the beeper started up and a member of security staf came upto me telling me i had to be searched i thought this will prove to be intersting, however before i could raise my rightful objections a store assistant came up and said it was not him it was the woman walking down there. pointing down the pavements centre.
