Regular visitors to the site and anyone interested in the Windmill Theatre will be familiar with the name of Maurice Poole who has been an avid supporter and contributor to the site for many years. A keen collector of all things Windmill Theatre Maurice has sent me a plethora of images and information on the Theatre over the years, and has also been involved in setting up events with ex Windmill Girls to celebrate the Windmill's history. Sadly Maurice passed away yesterday after a short illness. He will be much missed. The website has lost one of its most valued contributors. R.I.P. Maurice.

Unfortunately I have found it necessary to remove all the British Pathe Film Clips from the site. This is because British Pathe keep changing the addresses of these clips which makes for a huge amount of work updating them all. This is a real shame as they are such a good resource, but I would rather not have broken film clips on the site every time this happens as it spoils everyone's enjoyment of the site.
