And it is: Goodbye To All That...
Ace maggot-riddler, casterturner,hemp ?n tare boiler and all-round smiling face for everyone Geraldine finally hangs up her sieve today.
And Brian is retiring too.
Hard to believe that following the quarter century of laffs, good times, bad times (and occasional acrimony, nuff said) since Brian first opened up in wake of Dot's Tackle and Rod and Gun it has all come to an end!
Enthusiastic fossil-collector Geraldine is to spend more time on her hobby and using her artistic skills to make greetings cards for charity.
And Brian will fish more, while polishing his new catchphrase: "I really don't believe it..." (Which will be a change from his current. You can't go without buying SOMETHING mantra). For so many it will be the unthinkable, the end of a Victoria Road tradition: no more cups of tea, no more putting the world to rights while fondling a float...and another loo that can't be used while out in Bletchley.
But it is also time to say thanks from the thousands of customers who've enjoyed MK Angling Centre's, unique ambience over the years AND from all the local clubs which have received such unstinting help and support.
Thank you both. Enjoy your retirement you have earned it.
See you on the bank, sometime soon.
