are you sure it is not something more sinister
I knew a Bill Eatock years ago worked at Reeds not you by any chance
It's just an advertisement baloon for the new houses that were being built.
Never worked at Reeds, Dougie. I used to work at Singers in Market Street, Wigan. Servicing and selling sewing machines.
Not an advertising balloon, John. It was an airship returning home after televising a rugby match at Central Park. It was hovering around most of the day.
Thanks for your reply Bill, its just that I worked with him before I finished work and he came from that area
I wonder where the Bill Eatock you worked with is now, Dougie? Be interested to know as I'm researching our family tree.
In the early days Sky TV use to film Wigan Rugby from a balloon, it was called eye in the sky.
I know the Reeds Bill Eatock and his details, married to Jean, he worked with my Dad, they were good mates at Reeds / SCA for 30 odd years, Bills retired, my old mans still there at now Sieca, If you want details Bill, I'll give you them via Brian - cheers!
Thanks, Moz, that would be great. Obviously I won't go pestering Bill. Its just a matter of trying to discover if the Bill you knew is in the same family tree.
