IRONY IN A LANE’S NAME

Written by Ron Noon at 14:22 on Sunday, January 24th 2021

THERE IS IRONY IN LOVE LANE’S NAME. There is irony in the fact that the only thing that mattered to me when I started my SUGAR PROJECT in 1994, mentored by Albert E Sloane and John Maclean the two leading sweet fighters in the 10 year struggle to keep the historic mother plant open, was that sugar was SWEET. THAT’S THE LAST THING I’D SAY ABOUT SUGAR NOW.

Anyway just a very short blog (historically the shortest of blogs I’ve ever done) but one that merits reflection on this historic weekend. LOVE LANE LIVES lives on and the stories of the extraordinary Girls and Boys from the Whitestuff will continue to ripple on.
