    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.

    Remembering Voll

    I was at the game in 1961, remember it well, I went on a coach from Ashton full of Wiganers. I had a massive smile on my face all the way home !!!!!

    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?

    Sherdley Park

    Just been for a walk around Sherdley Park, all the animals and birds have gone from the pets corner. I wonder what next?

    Is this safe?

    Definitely not safe! I hope someone who can do something about it has seen your photographs.

    Brown Edge Pub,Nutgrove

    hi, Brian, I think the name comes from the place. That little area of Nutgrove is referred to on the old maps as Brown Hedge. I think the name derives from a hedge of trees that the leaves were brown in winter (deciduous?).

    Escape to the Country

    Worked (?) at Lathom for a few years, enjoyed walking round the fields and visiting the local pubs. Still enjoy walking down the canal bank. Great pictures Robbob, well done.

    Free Geneology Software

    Hi Strollby, I used to do my F.T.'s long hand but finished up with reams of paper which the wife threatened to set fire to if I didn't get rid of it. Now I use an external disc and find it a lot easier and far less of a verbal conflict.
