Aged 15, and helping in the cloakroom, was thrilled when three of our local group (John, Paul and George) arrived at the "Y" in their new collar-less suits (with their scruffy jeans a thing of the past) chatting to J/P/G they were excited for us to meet Ringo who appeared later and the boys invited my friend and I back-stage to meet him.

They pleaded we buy their record "Love Me Do" due out October 5th so I asked whether It was any good??

Later asked them for their autographs "in case they became famous one day!" The Beat Cats, also performing asked whether I wanted their autographs, to which the answer was a resounding "No thanks!"

Was invited by the boys to join them in their van to their next venue at The Magestic Ballroom! I refused as my mother had warned me not to go there as the place was full of drunken teddy boys! Besides, being a Mod rather than a Rocker, I preferred the basement club, The Cubic, almost next door which sold soft drinks, was more mellow but smelt a little "different"⁉️
