Such a thrill to find this photo posted by Chris Beasley. I went to see the Railway Children with Julie Walsh andA person I cant remember who, sorry and Chris. Such a laugh. Went out with steven Rimmer when we were 11. We fell in love at the school dance.

Sorry Ididn't go outwith Steven Rimmer, it was his cousin Kevin Wilcox. Steven went out with Phylis baldwin who was my friend when I was little.

I remember Susan Kenyon from Nicol Road Ashton. My first date was with Geoffrey Aspinall at Wigan baths. This photo brings back happy memories.
