I recognise two or three faces but can't put names to them. I think the lad third left sitting is Teddy Higson.

Sorry I meant Ronnie Higson.

Front row 2nd left, looks like Roy Leather, formerly of Worsley Mesnes, now living in Abram. Keith Robinson, Alf Beckett, Alan Kay, yes I remember them well.

Hi Keith, great picture the lad stood next to you is Brian Farley. By the way are Sylvia and Bill still out in Australia.

Do you mean Bill and Sylvia Williams who live in Melbourne Aus? Bill worked at Burtons and Sylvia once worked at Brown and Haighs.
