Well known round the pubs in Platt Bridge is he still gong strong not seen or heard anything about him for years. He was always in the King Billy and Queens.

I have just had an e-mail to say Tommy has been out for the last three Sundays. He goes with his brothers and has one pint. He is in sheltered accommodation in Moss lane but by all accounts is doing well which is good news. He was in the King by the way.

That's good news to know he's ok. broady thanks. Also Pey Burrows, beep54, not seen Pey since the Owd Hall days when we used to watch the rock band on Fri and Sun nights what a character he was passing a sweaty motorbike boot round full of ale and swigging out of it. Happy days. Is Pey ok?

Posted by: beep54 (972) Report abuse
Lost contact in the 70s but bumped into him few years ago, he is ok, still as mad as a brush.
