Hiya Josie I have a good one of your mum and GRANDAD going into St Williams shall I put it on here?
YES I WOULD LOVE TO SEE ANY OLD PICS YOU HAVE GERRY THANKS
By gum, I seem to recognise that chap. Him and my dad were good mates...he thought a lot about him...perfect gent...I think he was John Mawdsley who lived near the Bush near Dave taberner.
You are right Kevin my dad had a friend named Holcroft although he called him howcroft (ince lingo). Were you related to Ted Holcroft who drowned aged about 7 years old he was my best pal at St Williams.. in later years I became friends with his brother who lived in Coniston ave.
WHEN WE WERE KIDS IN THE 50.S WE USED TO WALK FROM PLATT BRIDGE TO THE SLAGGY TO DIG FOR BULLITS, WE CLEANED THEM OUT AND PUT THEM ON THE ENDS OF BULLRUSHES TO USE AS ARROWS, THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES,
I used to live across the road Ted, on the day Ted drowned I would normally would have been with them I will never forget that day.
