Thanks to all on here that sent me messages on my early retirement .
I couldn,t reply earlier as I was away for the weekend and I can only post when I am at home as mobile technology is pretty much beyond me, but thank you very much.

Sorry Dave - I missed that what with all of the Villa threads clogging up the forum.

Welcome to the ranks of the idle rich.

There was a thread on here the weekend with people moaning that you hadn't taken the trouble to return people's PM's.
Hope they are thoroughly ashamed now.
17:17, Tue 12 Jun
Yes, I have tried to explain to Mrs davenports that retirement is what my private messages are about.
No trust ;)
18:51, Tue 12 Jun
Sorry I missed that,but hope all goes well for you.


Is your poster name anything to do with a brewery?
They say I got brains but they ain't doin' me much good.
19:43, Tue 12 Jun
All the best in your retirement.

Yes. Davenports brewery used to have a big advert along the front of the old Tilton roof.
But only Ansells Brewery and M & B made it into Blues songs !

You should be ashamed . Vile had Davenports scrawled across their pink and powder blue blouses in the 80's
Southside Blue , not only keeping the blues alive but also singlehandedly saving the British Manufacturing Industry .

We had it first so I dont think I will lose any sleep ;)

The younger forum members won't know about the Davenports home delivery service.

When I lived in Carlton Road, the neighbours on one side thought they were a cut above the rest of us. One day, my mum was talking to this neighbour and I was nearby.

My mum said something about meeting friends at The Custard House(local pub). Neighbour said "John and I don't frequent pubs."

Cue for 7 year old wannabee to pipe up. I'd been off school for a few days the previous week.

"No, you get yours delivered by Davenports, don't you?"

We used to have the Corona pop wagon come round as well !
....crates of pop from the Alpine Pop Van... happy days :D

My dad's first job - walking down streets calling out "Corona Corona, Pop Pop, Pop Pop" with the van following him.

When we lived in Carlton Road, we had Alpine delivering. But not Davenports.

Anybody remember the advert ?

Beer at home means Davenports
That's the beer,lots of cheer
The finest malt with hops and yeast
Turns a snack into a feast.
Straight from brewery to your home,
why collect,we'll deliver
then you'll know why folks all say
beer at home means Davenports.

99% correct. Last but one line is "soon..." not "then..." I think.
