A nice fun story for the week, we are happy to welcome back a certain Mr. Bones the lovely Keltic mascot who has made another surprise visit in the office.

Keltic are on Coronation Street!!

Did you see Keltic’s School Crossing Patrol uniform on Coronation Street last week? It was modelled  beautifully by Dennis Tanner in his new “secret” job as a School Crossing Patrol person.

School crossing patrol uniform

Last week we saw how Dennis had to find a job to pay back Rita. He takes on the role of a School Crossing Patrol person but it seems to have caused him a few problems with a certain Steve McDonald.

After  discussing  the options with Lance – Head costume designer for the soap. He decided on using our  Yellow winter jacket, mountain hat and formal peaked hat and a pair of our high vision gloves.

Keep watching this week as the story line unfolds.

Blurry eyed but still standing, we all managed to survive our wild Vegas night which lasted into the early hours of the morning and as promised we have a treat of lovely photos.

Staff uniforms

We all had a fantastic time and would like to thank John and David for the lovely gesture. It was certainly one to remember particularly a certain Mr. Lines on the dance floor throwing some shapes.
