    No but my best friend is from Nottingham, she grew up in East Leake and now lives near the big Asda between there and the city centre. Many a fun night out has been had in Nottingham in our younger days :D

    I rarely see her up there nowadays as she can't have doggies in her flat; her flatmate is Muslim and won't allow them in the house :( but we do meet for a walk when I'm on my way up to York, it's just over halfway up the M1.

    Do you have a classic notts accent then BenBoy :D

    Naah!...West Bridgford.Opened as Gem,run by Yanks...but they couldn't grasp how British folks shopped and it failed...so Asda took it over...the rest is history.
