There are no lodges in Wigan or Ashton now Bri they dwindled in numbers and a lot of members passed on, spike and his friend still attend one in Culcheth, I think there is one in Thatto Heath which me and spike attended a few times, but the youngsters of today do not want to know so they are slowly dying out.
Replied: 14th Sep 2021 at 00:15
