    By Robbob2010,
    Well that's what i read on the sister site 'Warrington Guardians' website,they have gone in for restoration. I spoke to a guy outside the Town Hall and he said that they are due back early next year. I wonder who's paying for that.   Golden Gates in Warrington gone for restoration. by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Golden Gates in Warrington gone for restoration. by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Golden Gates in Warrington gone for restoration. by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   https://www.warringtonguardian.co.uk/news/16955745.video-golden-gates-being-removed-as-500k-repair-job-starts/   Some more pics to follow.

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
