Yes I do remember you working for the Makerfield Magistrates' Court, and I well remember playing many games of Table Tennis in our lunch hours. Hope you are keeping well and nice to see that you have not forgotten good old Wigan.

  Comments Amazingly comprehensive. I noticed Joe Pey mentioned in a report about a donation to a cancer charity. I knew a P.C. of that name back in the late 60s when I worked at Wigan Magistrates' Court. I wondered if it was the same person. I'll certainly keep in touch with your site.
