    My dad got a speeding ticket for doing 11 mph on it and it wasn't officially opened.

    Mrs Banks lived there, as kids we used to call on the way back from Happy Valley. Always got a drink and a piece of cake from her, a lovely woman.

    Complaints about Veolia

    Raising the output stack will not get rid of the smell. It will only disperse it over a wider area. The only way to stop it is to close it down altogether.

    Holman Michelle

    Hi Tom, I knew Jim Pye very well. We both went to Merton Bank School and then on to Parr Central. Jim's dad was a keen Bolton Wanderers fan and on occasions would take us both to the match. We were all there the match before the tragedy on the terraces where we usually stood, for some reason we could not go to that match. I lost touch with Jim when we both started work as apprentices him at Holman Mitchell and me at BICC. Met up again years later when he moved into Reeve Court Village. Sadly Jim died of Cancer last year.

    Fosters DIY Fingerpost

    Sad to hear that Robbob, I didn't know. I used to enjoy talking to him when he was home. His dad was a friend of my dad and we used to buy our diy things from the shop. Did'nt he have a brother who had a place in North Road?
