    Taken on saturday in memory of Labour MP Jo Cox. People gathered in parks for fun days and picnics,shared a drink and a chat on benches outside pubs,set up stalls for parties in their street or retreated inside for tea parties in libraries and churches,mosques and synagogues.Her husband,Brendan,described his amazement at people’s response.“We were originally thinking of just bringing some people together.We didn’t think it would have anything like the scale and traction it’s had.We’ve been awed by it. “We’ve had well over 100,000 events with millions of people taking part in the weekend.And we got the weather for it, which is a good thing to be able to say.” Brendan added. Thanks to FOVP (Friends of Victoria Park) Both local MP's Marie Rimmer & Conor McGinn,local Councillors,Greenalls Brass Band and of course members of the public.

    Here's some i remember I went to the pictures tomorrow I took a front seat at the back I bought a plain cake with currants in I ate it and gave it them back. The corporation muck cart was full up to the brim the driver overbalanced fell in and couldn't swim he sank to the bottom just like a little stone and then we heard him singing show me the way to go home. I was Christmas morn in the evening the snow was raining fast A barefoot girl with clogs on Stood sitting on the grass. And as kids we used to try saying this rhyme fast. I chased a bug around a tree I'll have his blood he knows I will.

    Wouldn't the Rants thread be better off as a private club. Members could post as much hate-filled venom as they like against minorites, races. religions etc; and have free reign to wallow as much as they want without the rest of us having to see it on the open forum. Members would also be more easily identifiable if/when they break any laws and be therefore be easier to trace should the police become involved. Just realised I voted earlier for any clubs to be open but now I realise that if this one takes off it would be better as a closed group.

    Hi, I replied on the facebook feed to this, didn't realise you had posted on here, am a bit confused by this new fangled site will get back soon, I'm looking up a possible link on ancestry and one on here added 44 minutes later Right, disregard my earlier post about the death date as I was only searching under Prescot registration and yours is under St Helens, his age was 66 as backed up by death census and military records and I found his grave with his wife so you are correct. 1883/1884 I can not find a suitable record entry for your Johns birth anywhere, you could check the two given by Hiss asking for help from the local registrar giving all information you know to be true, they may suggest the likely record if any of them match but what I would do is search the church records. By the looks of it they used Parr Mount, Holy Trinity? Those records are at St Helens History and Archives library RANGE FROM 1863-1963 but I'm not sure what exactly they contain, births marriages or deaths That's wrong apparently they are at Lancs Record Office 1869-1888 Baptisms only It has been known that a birth is registered in the wrong year in error, in fact, I found one such possible record as I was researching this, a ten year difference going by the mother maiden name to cross check. It is also not unknown for a birth not to be registered at all What I can offer is the 1939 census index entry for a John Duffy gives a birth date of 25/11/1883 and wife Jane Duffy born 25/3/1884 who live at 114 Holly Bank Street, which matches the military records for the same name and birth year.. The only other thing I found which is a rank outsider in the next district was DUFFEY, JOHN CHARLES MATTHEWS GRO Reference: 1883 M Quarter in WEST DERBY Volume 08B Page 354 I just thought of another thing, they may not have been married at time of Johns birth so he may only be registered under maiden name If only we had siblings for John then I could search them and you would have a mother's maiden name at least I also found a couple of marriages that may be interesting 1874 Eccleston St Thomas Michael Duffy and Mary Dolan (brother of Peter 2) 1882 24 Jan Holy Cross Peter Duffy and Sarah Ann Riley (for your Peter 2 born 1855?) a bit long in age but possible

    Such a shame about that derelict farmhouse and it's out buildings robbob, but if it's a listed building no one wants to spend a fortune putting it right and the local authority will stand by and watch it turn to dust before they would relax any of the planning laws.

    I remember a lullaby that my Mother sang as she tried to get me to sleep when a kid as she rocked away in the old rocking chair. but have never heard it sung by anyone else and have always wondered if it was her own composition.she sang it to a tune similar to the Z cars theme ( Johny Todd ) has anyone heard of it? Poor little Jesus born in a stable he had no fire and he had no light he had no clothes to keep him warm poor little Jesus when he was born. The cows and the horses blew their breath upon him to warm his hands and to warm his feet. his mother Mary wrapped him in a blanket and poor little Jesus fell fast asleep.
