  1. I used to love Vincents and Fredericks, I remember going there after going to Boundary Rd. Baths and when I hung out with my friends who lived round there. Here's some interesting info. I found about Fredericks. http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/liverpool-news/skelmersdale-ice-cream-firm-sold-3320259
  2. Just found this on Facebook, hope it works.
  3. I was thinking of him today, I will and I know everyone on Connect will miss him tremendously.
  4. Children get older, I'm getting older, too!

  5. Well done Ted, you deserve it for all your hard work.
  6. Pete, your song for Chris moved me, I know he liked Pink Floyd and this one, I will miss you Chris.
  7. Apologies if I'm wrong, just something I thought he mentioned, it could have been another member I'm thinking of.
  8. I just came online and saw the sad news, he was an essential part of St. Helens Connect. I will miss him. I think he once told me he had a son about the same age as mine, please pass on condolences to his family. Chris.
  9. I learnt all those poems too at school, I never felt like we had too though, it was more like encouraged, it gave me my lifelong love of reading, my favourite one I learnt was "The Walrus & The Carpenter", I had to recite it too. I still know it off by heart. https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poems-and-poets/poems/detail/43914 And talking of April & Poems & Browning, what about this one? Home-Thoughts, from Abroad Related Poem Content Details By Robert Browning Oh, to be in England Now that April's there, And whoever wakes in England Sees, some morning, unaware, That the lowest boughs and the brushwood sheaf Round the elm-tree bole are in tiny leaf, While the chaffinch sings on the orchard bough In England—now! And after April, when May follows, And the whitethroat builds, and all the swallows! Hark, where my blossomed pear-tree in the hedge Leans to the field and scatters on the clover Blossoms and dewdrops—at the bent spray's edge— That's the wise thrush; he sings each song twice over, Lest you should think he never could recapture The first fine careless rapture! And though the fields look rough with hoary dew, All will be gay when noontide wakes anew The buttercups, the little children's dower —Far brighter than this gaudy melon-flower!
  10. Hi AF, I would think the statue of Our Lady still belongs to Loyola Hall, or whoever the new owners will be. Why not ask St. Bartholomew's Church, or the "Friends of Rainhill (Loyola) Hall on Facebook if they have any info? https://www.facebook.com/groups/FriendsofRainhill.Loyola.Hall/
  11. Thanks Rob, So Sad, I can't stop thinking of little Violet.
  12. I just saw that in The Star. http://www.sthelensstar.co.uk/news/15177020.Doors_open_at_Poundland_and_Pep_Co_store/?ref=mr&lp=10
  13. Does this help Hort? "The current plan is to drain down the reservoir to provide safe access to replace the valves." http://www.sthelensaa.co.uk/cms/uncategorized/update-from-canal-and-rivers-regarding-the-proposed-works-at-carr-mill-dam/
  14. Here you go lads. "James Casey (16 August 1922 – 23 April 2011) was at various times during his long career a Variety comedian on the English music-halls, a scriptwriter for BBC Radio's variety shows and situation comedies, and a senior BBC Radio Light Entertainment producer. He was the son of the English Variety comedian Jimmy James, and cousin of comedian Eli Woods." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Casey_(variety_artist) Apparently he discovered Jimmy Clitheroe and other great comedians. I think I mentioned it before on this thread that my favourite was Jimmy Clitheroe when I was a kid. And then there was Jimmy Jewel, in this clip with Jimmy Clitheroe. Too many Jimmy's if you ask me. Sorry, looks like the Wiki link doesn't work, just Google James Casey (variety artist) - Wikipedia
