I MAY be going nuts, but does anyone remember talk of plans to build a super casino in town a few years back?

One of my pals from the bookies said he’d never heard of such a crazy scheme.

Was it another of those ideas like the ski slope in Haydock which sounded good but quickly melted away?

A casino would have been great for town… and I’ve always fancied getting tuxxed up a la 007 to play pontoon with a pretty croupier.

They could have called it The Gamble Institute.

Never mind. We’ve got Dream and some lovely new gable end artwork to take our mind off life’s little hardships.
