New Zealand Corrie fan club - where no-one's a fan

There are many Coronation Street fan clubs around the world where people get together to discuss our favourite soap.  So when I heard about a Coronation Street fan club in New Zealand I was a bit surprised to hear that no-one's a fan.  

The Coro Club has been formed for people to meet while their partners are at home watching Coronation Street!


The Coro Club was formed by Jim Cross, Mick Glew and Bob Newcombe who said they were tired of the weekly routine of their partners watching Coronation Street because the programme seemed to run for ages and they preferred to spend their time engrossed in "deep and meaningful conversation".

Members have been meeting on Tuesday evenings in the Sprig and Fern in Milton St for the last four years. Jim said the Coro Club had a hard core of seven members but they could get anywhere between six and 20 people attending on a Tuesday night.

The Coro Club have their own table in one corner of the pub and members also use the occasion to exchange any surplus produce they may have, such as homegrown vegetables.  Find out more here.

I had an online mate once whose husband used to call it "Consternation" Street I think. He'd head to the pub while it was on.
