I won't ask what you were doing in the Holiday Inn at Haydock then Bob.
Yep - I was on my way to the Ladies and I just noticed this picture on the wall. As I always carry my camera with me, I snapped a photo. Just a reminder that there is all sorts of memory lane stuff hanging around on pub and hotel walls....
