Some areas are for smokers and some smoke free. Its dog friendly in some areas also. Will be fab in the summer. Here a re a few shots.        

    The last week of WW1

    Dave
    By Dave,
    We've almost entered the last week of the centenary of WW1. In the last month, up until and after the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, the losses of St Helens people had continued.  Look at that last month - the last four noted as being 'Killed in Action' being John Harrison, Willie Arthur Johnson, John Lowcock and Henry Warren on the 8th of November, but people were dying every day from wounds received and from the flu pandemic, amongst other diseases. It was a hell of a miserable month.  And as our calendar shows, if you click through the following months, it was far from over, continuing into the 1920s - and beyond (e.g. my grandfather died in 1943, during WW2, as a result of mustard gas and of TB and the malaria he'd contracted in service in WW1). People sometimes ask how many St Helens people died, but we can only give a rough estimate that is based on the number of entries on the site - during those war years and a few years later. It was many more than are listed on the cenotaph. That rough estimate is 3,537. We will remember them.

    There is a photo below in the Abbey pub at the top of Denton's Green.   The caption underneath says, "Carr Mill Cricket Club". I cannot ever remember such a club, does anyone know where their cricket ground was located?

    My brother-in-law and his mrs did an Halloween theme tonight. He had a projector behind their blinds with different effects on,a fog machine,and 2 inflatables. One a Giant Pumpkin and the other a 7ft Pumpkin Reaper. They had lots of children trick and treating,cars slowing down and even cars stopping on their front.     Also a guy with his children wearing a Gas Mask passing by        Halloween 2018,Pumpkin Reaper by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Inflatable Pumpkin with Pumpkin Reaper by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Mr Gas Mask man passing by by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Happy Halloween 2018 by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Happy Halloween 2018 by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Pumpkins in the Fog by Robbob 2010, on Flickr       Projector with different effects.   Dying to get out...Projector behind the blinds. by Robbob 2010, on Flickr

    Rivington Road Primary School 1940s

    Alan
    By Alan,
    Something I heard recently brought back a strange memory. Because the word "Lavatory" was considered a bit coarse to our slightly posh female teacher, the word "Toilet" hadn't caught on yet and we little ones wouldn't understand words like WC or conveniences, the teacher used to refer to the lavatories as the "Offices". If you put your hand up and asked to go, she used to ask you if you needed paper or not, ie did you need to crap. If the answer was yes, she used to carefully tear off two pieces of that shiny toilet paper for you from a roll she kept on her desk
