    My one-and-only pre-war Southampton programme from 1929. It's quite plain in design but unusually for its age the original staples have hardly rusted.

    Energy Bills going mad

    I queried the standing charge increase with my supplier and here's their reply: This increase in standing charges is due to a number of factors, including: An increase in fixed network costs – this is the cost of maintaining the energy networks. Ofgem expects that improvements made here will benefit homes across the country. Increased costs associated with the volatility of the energy market. An increase in government policy costs – this includes the new Green Gas levy, and increased costs associated with the Warm Home Discount.

    Original BL stadiums still operating speedway.

    Correct! All were open license venues that staged WCQR meetings. There was hardly a shortage of tracks then so I wonder what the rationale was?

    Ipswich were also running Open meetings in 1965. On the subject of 1965, what did these 4 tracks have in common? Cowdenbeath, Ipswich, K.Lynn, Rayleigh.
