Taught me English for 5 years and rugby for four. A terrific teacher who really knew his subject and who devoted countless (unpaid) hours to schoolboy rugby. He was a friend at school and has become a closer one since leaving - he even remembers my name sometimes. There will always be those who disagree but in my opinion, Ray is quite simple, a great bloke.
The Social Security in Central Street is called Gregson House and there are references in these and other St Helens forum to Gregsons Yard, which is around the Crab Street/Travellers Rest area. Who was the Gregson after which this property/area is named? Curious!
