  1. The Battle Of Tadcaster Bridge

    There's a nice new view from the bridge.
  2. The Battle Of Tadcaster Bridge

    This isn't the end of the story by any means. The two sides of the town are reconnected, but many businesses are yet to reopen after the floods, including; a bank, a bakery, a bookies, a newsagent, a couple of restaurant / takeaways, a couple of pubs, a charity shop ...... Those business that are open have to contend with the loss of trade from through traffic. But for today we celebrate the wonderful bridge that old Humpty said wouldn't be thing of beauty.

  7. The Battle Of Tadcaster Bridge

    Tadcaster's new bridge to be called Sonny's Bridge, in honour of 23-year-old who died the day it was put in place  TADCASTER’S new footbridge has been named after Sonny-Brogan Lang, the 23-year-old from the town who died this week after a courageous battle with cystic fibrosis. Matt Gore, chairman of Tadcaster Albion FC, called for the tribute and was supported by Sonny’s mum Anna. The idea has since been backed by local MP Nigel Adams, and North Yorkshire County Council director, David Bowe. Sonny died on Tuesday, two days after her 23rd birthday. She received a heart and lung transplant when she was four, the youngest person ever to receive a double transplant. Mr Gore also announced today that supporters, players and club officials would hold a minute’s applause before Saturday’s match against Liversedge. The club will also play Sonny’s favourite song, Right Here by Jess Glynne. Mr Gore said that as well as working behind the bar at the club, Sonny also helped her mother with tasks such as catering and cleaning kits. "She was a beautiful person inside and out and we will miss her deeply," he said. "The name Sonny could not have been a more appropriate one." He said the minute's applause and song were planned for just before Albion's first game at home since the ground was badly flooded just after Christmas. The town's road bridge also partially collapsed during the floods, making it very difficult for pedestrians to get from one side of the town to the other, but the new footbridge is set to provide a crossing from Friday afternoon. Mr Gore said the footbridge, which was pushed into place on the day Sonny died, would end in a ramp coming down into the club's car park, and he had approached local MP Nigel Adams and North Yorkshire County Council about the possibility of officially naming it 'Sonny's bridge.' He said that whatever their response, it could still be named unofficially by the club through a plaque in the car park, and he was also planning a flower bed in Sonny's memory. But on Wednesday afternoon, he wrote on the club website: "The new footbridge in Tadcaster will be named 'Sonny's Bridge' in memory of Sonny-Brogan Clark. "We would like to thank Nigel Adams MP and David Bowe, Director of NYCC, for their compassion, understanding and agreement regarding the community of Tadcaster referring to the temporary footbridge as 'Sonny's Bridge'. "We will also be erecting a memorial garden near the entrance to the bridge, which will include a commemorative plaque in Sonny's memory. "We would urge members of the community to join with us by referring to it as Sonny's Bridge in her memory."  He said Sonny had loved Right Here, and would sing and dance behind the bar when it came on. "I am confident that Sonny will always be 'right here' with her family and friends," he added. Sonny's mother Anna said she was 'honoured' by the club's plans. "Sonny would have been honoured and delighted too," she added.
  8. It was an embarrassing thing to be photographed with....     ..and the jumpsuit isn't much better!
  9. Coming in March an unofficial release of the '88 Stockholm broadcast. Hopefully the actual cover will be better than this!     Upon its release in October, 1987, Bruce Springsteen's Tunnel of Love proved an unexpected follow-up to the phenomenally successful Born in the USA. The show presented on Tunnel Vision, recorded in Stockholm in 1988, captures this new formulation of the E-Street Band in what would be a live production unique to this tour, with Patti Scialfa coming to the fore on soaring versions of ‘Tunnel of Love’, ‘Cover Me’ and ‘Brilliant Disguise’. It is a remarkable document of Bruce Springsteen in the process of re-evaluating both his life and his music, with his band fully committed to this new approach.
