I used to be the relief main stage caller at Mecca Lewisham in 1989. I can still remember starting the link games and joining up Lewisham with Forrest Hill and Erith. They were great times. These days it is all about money. I was up there to call the numbers and give them a good time. Shame I can never find any photos of Mecca Lewisham.

I used to be a main stage caller back in 1984/85. Lewisham had a refurb in 1985 and a couple of old TV Eastenders characters were there for the opening. I have the old VHS somewhere. They were great days. Good laughs! I feel sad when I drive past the old boarded up building nowadays.

Way back in 1972/73 I worked at Mecca Lewisham as a steward, very well on my way to graduate as a caller. I was a student at SELTEC and worked part time. The good old days are still fresh in my mind. The staff coordination, being friendly and cheerful with everyone around!! We had prize Bingo follwed by Cash Bingo at that time. Everyone knew me as Milroy and to my good friend Phil, I was Mil! My colleagues at that time were - if I rightly remember - Phil, Mike, Peter, Linda Doble, Brenda, John, Jones (Manager), Mr Sudbury (Manager) Wally, Mr Moss (Manager), Ann and many many more! I wonder where they are now! How I wish I could communicate with them now. The club used to open at 1.30 p.m and would go up to around 11 p.m. (if I rightly remember). Shame on me I don't have picture of the club or my colleagues.So sad to see the club has gone now! Well, nothing lasts in life!!!
