Hi, I'm writing a feature for the Ilford Recorder about what it was like being a teenager around the area during the 60s. I would like to chat with anyone who has memories and/or pics they could share.

Can anyone remember the snooker rooms, I think it was called the "Lucanno", up the high st on the left hand side past Harrison Gibsons.

Gee whizz, you are a thick lot!  
 
Obviously, it was "Locarno"....named after the place in Switzerland.  
 
No wonder I don't come here often.....

Hi Jamla hon!
I must be one of the thicker ones also ...How  do you make a connection between "A place in Switzerland " and a "snooker hall in Ilford"?

Just to confuse the issue,the Basildon Locarno was a mecca dance hall similar to the Ilford Palais and the Tottenham Royal back in the day!

Isn't the place in Switzerland called 'Lucerne'? The snooker hall was probably called Meccano.

Thanks both, memory fades a bit, the last time I played there was 49 years ago, happy days. If memory serves me, a  new game started when I played there called "Colour Flash". never seen it elsewhere  or ever again come to that. I hope my memory is correct or my mate was slipping something into my coke. Zombie

Never heard of that one - can you still remember how to play it?
 
Hmm - perhaps that should read "how it was played" ...!

  All I can remember is there were four colours and four balls in each colour and the game was played on a snooker table. It,s getting to look like the coke additive.
