Hi Tina Maylum I remember you and your brother Tony, You used to go to Eastchurch school for a while and I always remember thinking you were the prettiest girl I had ever seen. Your Dad is a Leysdown legend still talked about as the best bingo caller ever to have worked in Leysdown. Hope your well,....Rob

my name is tina maylum and i have great memories of leysdown on the 60's. my dad was billy maylum and called bingo at the golden nugget i think. his sister eileen married stan northover so i felt like i had a celebrity aunt and uncle. i remember visiting the big house with the sweeping staircase going up both sides of the room, carpet about s foot deep and sbout 5 chihuauas. we lived in seaview gardens and i remember Toms shop at the bottom of the road. does anyone remember the blue lagoon open air swimming pool.

I remember them well. They were 'CELEBS' before the word was invented. Eileen was very kind to me in my childhood and they were good friends of my dad George Parlane and his partner, Audrey. They were the most generous people you could ever dream of and started out with nothing. Stan started his bingo with bottle tops to cover the numbers painted on boards and a tennis ball thrown into a wooden painted grid. Eileen began with a cafe and knew all the tricks of the trade. We visited them at their large flat over the NEW VENTURE, later the WELLWORTH ARCADE which my dad bought from Stan in 1958. May they rest in peace or ... rather be having a great time wherever they are.

I remember Stan and his wife visiting my parents, Joe and Rose (Rosie) Dempsey, in the 1960's and my mother's obvious dislike for both of them. Stan wanted my father to go into partnership with him in amusements in Leysdown and my mother absolutely forbid it.
