Re: The TSB & Lloyds Bank relaunch news and information board

Re: TV Live Forum Watch News and Information Board

Interesting to see the new versions of some of the ancient names coming back.

I remember Ann O'Rack, Paddy O'Doors, Duff Le'Coat and all that crowd from the old days.

I suspect the new administrator of TV Live Forum has done podcasts with some of those!

Re: The TSB & Lloyds Bank relaunch news and information board

I had a savings account with Cheltenham & Gloucester going back to the sixties, and a number of mortgages with them over the years. It was a very convenient local branch where you could go in and transact your business five-and-a-half days a week. It then got swallowed up by the Lloyds TSB Group...
