Memento Holbrook House, 5th October 1970…White Rabbit, and a momentous day in the history of Maidstone United Football Club :)
72, Bank Street, Maidstone…once home of Kingsford, Garlant & Co., Chartered Accountants, where a callow youth began his working life, half a lifetime ago 😉
Pub sign for the White Rabbit, an inn near Fairmeadow, Maidstone.
Maidstone United celebrate their return to the town, after a two dozen year exile, with a friendly fixture against Gus Poyet’s Brighton and Hove Albion, at the new Gallagher Stadium. Oh, the result…well, it was Maidstone United 0 Brighton and Hove Albion 5…but it was only the occasion that mattered. Welcome home, MUFC :).
Touch wood, WP seems to be working properly again for me. Keeping everything crossed!
Okay, glad to hear it, and my WordPress theme’s presentation issues seem to be have been resolved, for the time being at least, but like you, it’s fingers crossed ;). By the way, I saw the problems you had trying to get a close-up photo of the Olympic Torch yesterday, and I’ll bear that in mind when it passes through Fratton tomorrow morning. Funnily enough, one of my other FB friends uploaded a picture of the Olympic Torch in Southampton yesterday, and she was a lot more fortunate in terms of her location, as she was evidently roadside, only a few feet from the Torch bearer when he passed by :).
A big day for Maidstone! Yay!
Haha, a big day indeed, Kate, and I noticed that you have Kentish connections :). I wonder too when Dover Athletic will play their first game at the new stadium ;).
