    Recently there was an article about how our council plans to erect a giant glass dome over the middle of town and give it a revamp, it also mentioned that it's going to cost one hell of a lot of our money! I was born and bred in St Helens, and a couple of weeks ago I went into town after an absence of about a year, and I have to say what an absolute dump it was! Shops closed down, litter all over the place, and shop workers who were either sat around doing nothing or as miserable as sin. It was so bad in Poundland that I gave up and walked out, staff doing nothing, and a load of customers struggling to use those stupid self-checkouts, while the staff who could have been running tills stood around watching nobody pinched anything at the self-serve! I remember a while back, there was an outcry because someone wanted to open an adult store on the East Lancs rd, "it will corrupt the innocent children" cried the horrified public! On Saturday, I visited Warrington, they are building a new market and have a temporary one until the new one is built. I walked around it, stallholders smiled and said "hello", it was far busier than my hometown, yet everyone was friendly, there was no pushing and shoving, I was served by people who actually smiled! At one point I met the mayor, he was doing a walkabout and asked what I thought of his town, I had to be honest and tell him how much of a pleasure it was to find clean streets, polite, smiling staff, and streets lined with shops that were actually open. He advised me to visit Golden Square, there was a Christmas event on, stalls selling various food and drink items, a large covered area where you could sit and relax, again it was spotlessly clean, in the background played cheerful music, loud enough to hear, but not loud enough to be annoying. I then ambled into the main shopping centre, again all the stores were open, it was like a mini Trafford centre. I was looking for a particular store, so I asked one of the cleaners, she smiled and not only gave me directions but also pointed out one of a number of map boards that they have to help you find your way around. All in all, it was a very pleasant experience, I only intended on popping in for one item, I actually spent several hours there, oh and they have 2 adult shops, yet the kids are not corrupted, or wandering about causing mayhem or hanging around in large groups. I'm sorry to say this but for shopping in future I shall be visiting Warrington, they have loads of good shops, staff that are pleasant, and streets that don't resemble some Eastern European rat hole. The members of our beloved council would do well to visit Warrington and ask how they do it, because from what I can see their council tax bills are not massive, so it can't be more money, it has to be a question of how it is spent.

    Some updated and some new. When i was passing the former George St Suites a bloke was coming out and i asked him whats going on with the place.He told me it's going to be a Mexican Restaurant next year.

    Shame you felt the need to post that on this thread, Hort, there is another thread which might have been better Marie Rimmer is serving her constituents by standing with the family and friends of a man who died in tragic circumstances. She is also campaigning against knife crime so she is doing her duty as leader of the council. The facts behind the incident or the outcome of the trial has nothing to do with showing respect for the dead - they are two entirely separate things.

    I'm relatively new to family history but I've made some interesting (to me, at least) discoveries. I managed to push my part of my Haselden line back to around 1725 and almost all were born, lived and died within about 8 miles of where I grew up in Parr! There's a close association with the Sankey Canal in my family, with at least 5 members being lock keepers at various times. Locations include Newton-le-Willows, Widnes Docks and the New Double Locks in Parr. My Great(x3) Grandfather, William Haselden, was the lock keeper at the latter location for many years. He must have known my Great-Great Grandfather James Gamble, who owned a flat and was a boatman living in Sankey Place at the same time William Haselden was the lock keeper at New Double Locks. James Gamble must have taken his flat through those locks many times as he moved goods out of St.Helens. Ironic that that James' Grandaughter and William's Great Grandson would marry 70 years after William and James were working the canal. There's a sad aspect to this Sankey Canal association. William drowned in the canal, as did his father and one of his Grandsons, also named William...spookily, the 2 Williams drowned in the same place, near Merton Bank Road and Island's Brow. Another William Haselden, my Great Uncle, had an "interesting" reputation. We call him "William the Bad". He joined the 1st Bn, South Lancs Regt in 1888 and was posted to Portsmouth to help man the forts defending the south coast. In 1892 he was locked up for 30 days for assaulting a police officer. According to a contemporary newspaper article, he and his mates were coming back from a night on the town when a police officer told them to move along. They duly took off their belts and gave him a beating. Shortly after his release, he was posted to the 2nd Bn (I'm sure the 1st Bn just wanted rid of him) resulting in him going to Gibraltar then Malta and finally Egypt. While in Cairo, he was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes and was sent home to a military hospital in Southampton. He was discharged in 1894 on medical grounds. His paperwork included a section where his commanding officer could provide comments on his character and general habits. William's CO wrote just 3 words, "Irregular. Intemperate. Bad." William died in the Whiston Union Workhouse a year later due to his medical condition. My military heritage outside the Haselden line is a little more auspicious. George Gamble and his brother James lived in South John Street, Parr. Prior to WW1 they had labourer jobs typical of my family, George in Greenall's brewery and James in the mines. George was enlisted in the Rifle Brigade right after war broke out and military life clearly suited him, progressing through promotions to the rank of Sgt. He was commissioned in 1917 to the rank of 2nd Lt and was sent back to his unit in France in August of that year. Barely a month later, he was in the trenches when he heard German soldiers trying to cut the barbed wire. According to one report, he went to warn another officer of the impending threat (perhaps the Germans were more immediately in front of this other officer's position) but the Germans threw "bombs" (presumably hand grenades) which killed the other officer immediately and mortally wounded George. George's brother, James, joined the Royal Flying Corps in 1915 as an Air Mechanic. He, too, was promoted to Sergeant and then, in November 1917, was accepted for pilot training. I wonder if the death of his brother, George, that September, prompted James to take a more active role in the war. Upon completion of training, he was posted to 11 Squadron in France flying Bristol F2b Fighter aircraft. On one occasion, his engine failed and he had to force-land on a trench which broke the aircraft's fuselage in two. He and his observer where unharmed. At the end of the War, James stayed in the RAF serving with 11 Sqn as part of the occupation forces in Germany. He returned home in July 1919 and was ultimately discharged from the Service in 1923.

    What a load of crap, when I was a lad, you'd even get a clip round the ear off the village bobby, most of us turned out fine and none of mine have ever been in trouble with the law. I'm talking a timely slap, not a severe beating, or are you one of these people who advocates a "no boundaries" approach to rearing children? There was some right stupid cow on tv a while back, her kid peed on the floor because it didn't want to go to the toilet, it was about 5 years old, another one scratched a neighbours car, "it's fine, he's just expressing his creative side" replied the woman, when asked what she thought about what he'd done. Creative side my arse, if he'd done several hundred pounds worth of damage to my car then there'd have been hell to pay. There are too many parents these days who abdicate responsibility, there was an old lady killed at the weekend by a 14-year-old on an illegal motorbike. Perhaps if his parents had taken a bit more interest in his upbringing then there wouldn't be an old lady lying in the mortuary.

    Here you go Jeff, I've posted this before, if I remember right he was my Great Grandad's Brother. One of my ancestors, James Clitheroe was charged with Murder and was Hanged in 1864. 16/04/1864 James Clitheroe THE EXECUTION OF JAMES CLITHEROE Of St. Helen's, for the Murder of Mary Woods, this day. James Clitheroe, the culprit in this remarkable case, suffered death on Saturday, in front of the Kirkdale gaol, near Liverpool, though efforts had been made to secure a reprieve. The circumstances in connexion are of a somewhat peculiar description. Clitheroe was a married man with a family, but his affections appear to have been divided between his wife and Mary "Woods, a poor paralytic woman, who earned a living by keeping a school and selling small beer. The prisoner was in the habit of sharing the murdered woman's bed, and as his neighbours knew of this he was twitted by them, in the intense- ly acrimonious manner peculiar to vulgar and uneducated people, as to " the poor cripple Mary "Woods " being enciente by him. This seems to have annoyed Clitheroe very much, and his mortification and chagrin ecting upon a morbid temperament prompted him to murder. On the night of the 28th of December last he visited Mary "Woods' house, and went to bed with her as was his wont, but early next morning he cut her throat and his own too, though the wound was only fatal in the case of the woman. Later in the morning the school children were unable to gain admission to the house as usual, and, as no one answered the door after repeated knocks, an entrance was effected at the rear of the premises, and an investigation took place. In an up- stairs room the police found Marj' "Woods and the prisoner in bed together — the woman quite dead, and with her throat cut, and the man in an exhausted condition, with his throat cut also. The blood upon the woman's throat was dry, and she had evidently been dead for several hours ; whereas the blood upon Clitheroe was fresh, and his wound must have been recently inflicted, because the blood was flowin" freely from the arteries of the neck when the police first entered. The prisoner, when asked what he had been doing, stated that he and Mary "Woods had agreed to cut their throats, saying, " We made it up to cut our throats, She told me that the razor was in the drawer, under the looking-glass. I fetched the razor, got into bed, and first cut my own throat." The prisoner never deviated from this account of the trans- action, either before or after the trial, but it must have been untrue in point of fact, because the strong and irresistible probability is, that the woman's throat was cut at five o'clock in the morning, and that she was dead several hours before the prisoner made the attempt upon his own life. "When the prisoner was on his trial, Mr Justice Willes directed the jury that if the prisoner counselled, assisted, or directed the woman to destroy herself, he was guilty of murder. THE EXECUTION. The culprit, who was pinioned by Calcraft in the usual way, struggled hard. To the last he persisted in the story of suicide. The crowd was not so great as had been expected. After hanging the usual time, the body was cut down, and the crowd soon after dispersed.

    I'm interested in a Gamble family line that may (or may not) be distantly related to David Gamble who funded the Gamble Institute. One of my Great-Grandmothers was Mary Gamble (born 1857) who married John Lee in 1877. By the 1891 Census they were living in South John Street in Parr. By the 1911 Census, Mary's brother, William Gamble, was living on the opposite side of South John Street with his wife Louisa (nee Oakes). William and Louisa had 10 kids: Emily born 1890 George born 1892 James born 1894 Ernest born 1895 Eva born 1896 Louisa born 1900 Doris born 1901 William born 1904 Hilda born 1910 Charles born 1914 Emily Gamble married William Thomas Evans in 1910 and they had 4 children, the youngest being George Gamble Evans, presumably named after Emily's brother George (see below). George Gamble Evans served as an Army officer in WW2. George Gamble joined the Rifle Brigade in 1914 and rose through the ranks to Sergeant before receiving a commission in 1917. He returned to his unit in September 1917 but lost his life during a raid by German soldiers on his trench line just a month later. James Gamble joined the Royal Flying Corps as an Aircraft Mechanic in February 1915 and was promoted through the ranks to Sergeant Mechanic. In November 1917 he was accepted for pilot training and went to France in September 1917 flying Bristol Fighter aircraft with 11 Squadron. He survived the war, eventually retiring from the reserves in 1923. I'm keen to get in touch with anyone else researching William Gamble's family, particularly any descendants from his children.

    A lot of my family worked there, my dad and my uncle drove lorries, I remember one story about how my uncle, who wore a wig (all the lads in our family went bald early) was out in a wagon and my dad was behind him in another one, one broke down and they were trying to fix it and another wagon stopped to help. They were talking to this other driver, and my uncle went under the truck, as he was fixing it his wig came off and he didn't realise! When he popped back out, the other driver didn't recognize him without the wig, and asked where the other fella had gone, my uncle told him that it was him under the wagon, and the bloke replied, "no you're bald, the other bloke had a full head of hair". My uncle, who didn't like anyone knowing he wore a wig, went back under the truck, found his wig and rammed it back on his head, it wasn't straight but nobody dared tell him. He never admitted to wearing a wig, and thought nobody knew, however it was a standing joke that he was the only bloke anyone knew, who's hair was the same style and colour in his 60's as it was in his 20's.

    I ripped all the gear out of there when it shut, I used to do a bit of electrical work for a bloke called Scutter, he had a skip firm in Sutton. He and one of his mates were on about opening a dog track at the football ground in Sutton. They bought all the gear from Park road, to use on the new place, they'd got plenty of lads who could rip stuff out, but there was no guarantee they could put it back again. He paid me to remove it all carefully and mark it all up, but I was never asked to install it at Sutton, so I assume they never built a dog track.
