Aspull.

Comment by Mick on 30th March 2019 at 06:55
Aspull and some other areas of Wigan are looking lovely now all the daffodils are out.
I was admiring the daffodils on Beech hill ave the other day, and coudnt believe one of the locals had dumped a couch amongst them.


Comment by Veronica on 30th March 2019 at 09:13
At last! A fanfare of trumpets yonder by Moss Pit Row,
Tossing heads, advancing, dancing daffodils grow....
Hooray !


Comment by Gary on 30th March 2019 at 09:30
Haven't seen this view in donkey's years.
The houses look excellent - and what an outlook!
Good photo, Ron.

It's time Admin put a stop to that Mick having a pop at council tenants ..I know some awful folk in Shevington that I wouldn't give tuppence for..and Mick is one of them..he obviously hasn't been well educated by the looks of his spelling,come on admin,do your job and stop him.


Comment by Philip G. on 30th March 2019 at 10:48
My word! Veronica, you've certainly opened up here, with your lovely lines. I'll bet that the great Stephen Foster will be saying " I wish I'd have thought of those lines for Jeannie with the Light Brown Hair". Oh, by the way, Bjorling does a great version of that song - sung in English, too.


Comment by Veronica on 30th March 2019 at 12:38
Thought I would get in first before the real poets 'strut their stuff' Philip....thanks for the info.


Comment by David Barker on 30th March 2019 at 13:06
My grandparents lived in No,2 second from right in the forties onwards ,my auntie now lives in it ,they didnt have gardens or back doors then at the rear, the fields at the rear came right up to the windows ,the cows used to lick the windows or put their head through if it was open.
The landlord bought some land off the farmer to had the gardens.
Nice photo Ron.one for the album.


Comment by John D on 30th March 2019 at 15:31
Whenever I see daffs in bloom it puts me in mind of a an alleged conversation between miners' union boss Joe Gormley and a colleague.

"I see the daffodils are out, Joe"
"Is it official or unofficial?" was Joe's reply.


Comment by Joan S on 30th March 2019 at 18:40
David, as you know I lived at # 3 throughout the 50s and 60s next door to Tommy. Moss Pit Row looks much better now much different to when I lived here, outside loo, tin bath in front of fire, goodness, they were the days. moved in 1969 to Scot Lane, but have lived in North Yorkshire for the past 36 years. Lovely photo Ron, thanks for the memory.


Comment by Fred Mason on 30th March 2019 at 20:46
Lovely spring photo, Ron.

Cheers.

As you can see Susan...

I am with you Susan .

You fool no one Mick ! Let others on WW follow your mindset. It is certainly not mine .
What you and your friends try to hide I find greatly repulsive.
No matter how many posts you put on WW Your deep rooted comments on Council estates , only show what and who you are .

I was born and bred on a Council Estate .
We would give each other our last .
We protected each other . It was never a case of us or them, Just us , trying to move forward. This is what bound us together , no one better !
If you feel you are better than me , simply because I came from a Council Estate , which you and your friends clearly do , then it shows you were born from a thread everyone on WW should expose and destroy. For heaven sakes , Donít post pictures of flags in Shevington then make dreadful comments about Council Estates .
Come on WW . We should not just ignore .

No couch on Beech Hill Avenue amongst the daffs, why lie Mick?


Comment by David Barker on 31st March 2019 at 02:10
Hi, Joan hope your keeping well, as they say ,every picture ,photo tells a story.
My Auntie Brenda who married Tommy,as I say still lives there, the houses were all rewired a few years ago, a few tenants have bought them, look very nice now all round.
tc Joan.

For once... I'm with Mick re' his comments. The problem with some in social housing is lack of civic duty and pride. It also applies to some who privately own their properties but less so.

If you want to know how it should be done... take a Google street view of social housing in the Netherlands. (Near to Edam) 12 Sportlaan
Purmerend, North Holland


Comment by malcsmate on 4th April 2019 at 15:53
Sorry Angela visit to Specsave needed. There was a couch amongst the daffs on the grass at the junction of Beech Hill Lane and Beech Hill Ave. It was there for at least 5 days.
