Mighty Like a Rose featured in the Wakefield Express


The Wakefield Express has a special place in my heart, as many years ago I used to do casual work on a Thursday evening inserting the sports and what’s on sections into the main paper. A great job for just standing around chatting and best of all, if the presses stopped working we’d get sent next door to The Spaniard pub (now called The New Union) while they sorted it out! The idea evening (for us) was a couple of breakdowns, so a couple of halves at the Spaniard, then if they kept us working past midnight we got paid extra. Happy times!
