    Little bit of history here. I was a 15 yo pool lifeguard at The Beresford Hotel in Birchington, near Margate, when the Beatles stayed for the week. They gave me £5 each time I could ‘save’ the tin ashtrays they threw in the deep end. As I only earned £6 a week I thought it was brilliant. Highspot though was pushing my bike towards the hotel gates one evening and the guys old black Princess came by, the window came down, and John asked if I wanted a lift up to the village. I’ve never thrown my bike so quicky into the bushes….
    Nice memories.
