.Su Pays Tribute To Paul Shane
Friday 17th May, 2013  
Today, I am remembering my dear Shaney, not only a great colleague but a fabulous mate over the years. How happy am I that I got to spend thirty years of my life with someone who's company I always loved. We were kindred spirits, really, of a similar background who fully understood our little corners of beginnings. We were both able to grow together so it was a professional and personal journey that we could relate to. I obviously can't adequately describe all the adventures we had, but I do know that we both got to understand and appreciate a good wine! His greatest moment was when he correctly identified his first bottle of Chateau La Feit! How fabulous.

I would like to thank, on his behalf, all of you who were fans of his and I know he greatly appreciated you . He, above anyone, knew you are nowhere without your audience.

God bless, Paul and Hi-de-hi.

Your pal, Su xxxx aka as Four Eyes (affectionately termed by Shaney)

.Rest in Peace Paul Shane (1940 - 2013)
Friday 17th May, 2013  
It is with much sadness that Su Online reports the death of Paul Shane, a long time friend of Su and co-star in the legendary Hi-de-Hi!, You Rang, M'Lord? and Oh, Doctor Beeching! BBC sitcoms.

Shane was a coal miner before starting out as a cabaret act touring working men's clubs in the 1960s.

In his later career he appeared in Emmerdale as Solomon Dingle, as well as having parts in Holby City, Doctors, Coronation Street and A Touch Of Frost.

He is survived by three daughters and six grandchildren. His wife Dory died in 2001.

Linda Kremer, Shane's agent for 15 years, said: "Paul Shane was a consummate professional, a true gentleman, a good friend, and a joy to work with. He didn't suffer fools, always maintained his sense of humour, never stinted on the time he gave to his fans.

He lightened my life and I'll miss him enormously."

.Out Magazine: Andy Bell's Spring Awakening
Wednesday 1st May, 2013 Events
One of the most glittering events in the London gay calendar is the Spring Awakening party thrown by NAT (National AIDS Trust). This year’s event will take place at the historic Haberdasher’s Hall, Smithfield, on Thursday 30 May. It will be hosted by Christopher Biggins and Su Pollard (so you know it’s going to be a lively and camp affair!), while there will be an exclusive live acoustic set from Erasure’s Andy Bell (pictured) – his first live UK appearance since 2011.

The evening will feature free drinks (including a new cocktail created by mixologist Simon Difford), canapés, a tombola, raffle and much-anticipated auction offering money-cant-buy prizes. Last year’s event raised a whopping £35,000 and NAT are hoping to equal or better that this year.
