  1. Phil, I also lived in Stuart Crescent at that time and I remember the winter.

    Inside St.Thomas Church, Eccleston

    Phil do not worry, even Jesus lost his temper in the temple. Mathew 21 v12 Jesus entered the temple courts and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves. Gentle Jesus meek and mild.

    Air raid shelters?

    When I lived in Rivington Avenue in the 1950s, some of the houses had shelters still there. They were above the ground and made of corrugated iron

    Victoria Park 2018

    Swings and see-saws need no maintenance Neither do monkey ladders. Ok bowling greens do, but so do the rest of the park's grass lands need attention also. Also the flower beds etc.

    Victoria Park 2018

    The kids rides and skateboard park are not where the bowling greens were. Neither is the basketball court. In fact the kids rides are where the swings, see-saw, monkey ladders etc used to be so they have not moved just changed. No reason why we could not have all the above AND the bowling greens.

    For over 45 years....

    This happened to the last couple who had the Eagle and Child in Billinge. Hazel and Chris. Chris was a chef in the Army and did fabulous food. Bar takings through the roof and the brewery demanded huge sums for serving food. They packed in and went elsewhere. Similar story in The Abbey. Landlord Mark turned it round with great food and beer takings shot up. The council gave it 5 stars for food, then the brewery demanded huge cuts because his food takings where over £40,000 per annum. he packed in and left and now Holts have taken over the food, but the council rating for hygiene has gone down from 5 stars to zero stars and menu is a load of shite. Bar takings down and down.
  14. I do not think this is a bad problem for traffic. However millions are to be spent on so called improvements. If its anything like the Millions spent on the "improvements" of the East Lancs /M6 junction its going to another waste of money that makes congestion worse than it is now. http://www.sthelensstar.co.uk/news/16194800.Council_receives___2_6m_for_A580_improvement_works/?ref=rss
