    Battle's Over

    I went up to the Billinge Hill so called "Beacon fire". A complete waste of time. Hundreds of people up there, but as for the "Beacon fire", I have seen brighter stars in the sky. Most Billingers were expecting a proper Beacon bonfire, like those we had in the past. Very disapointing.

    Queen in St Helens

    I remember the Queen visiting the town in 1955. I was taken to the house of Charlie Heaton, the removal man, in Denton's Green lane where I watched her go past.

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.

    England v New Zealand

    RL is a joke. Las of the game not enforced at the highest level and football is going the same as well.
