Platt bridge has changed so much, but great to see that the church continues to be an important landmark in the community. Lovely inside also, and lovely people too

Does anyone remember my father (age 75 years old) his name was Ken Walls and his sisters were called Marian and Margaret and his brother was called Christopher

I think I remember Marian Walls. There was a Walls family living in Green Street, Platt Bridge, on the corner of which was the hardware shop in which I lived as a child. Didn't Marian visit her mother on Green Street? Do you know your family's history? I have a Walls great grandfather and wonder if there is a link between him and your family. Feel free to get in touch if interested.
