Once, when I was having a cup of tea in the cafe that used to be in the Regis Centr in Bognor some thirty years ago, Billy Dainty came in and he had a cup of tea.


Allan Report 4 Sep 2016 23:39

Did he drink his tea in a Dainty way? :-D :-D


Sharron Report 4 Sep 2016 23:42

Can't remember. I think he might even have had a doughnut..

I just Googled him and it doesn't look like he lived long after that.

Glad I didn't have a doughnut!
