Those barriers are everywhere!
I echo Tom Walsh`s comment.

Merry Christmas everyone. Enjoyed all the photos over the year. Here's to many more.

a Merry Christmas to all readers of WW, and of course to members who are abroad. So all the best to you Derek out there in Canada. I'll be having a pint with your Roy in St. Judes tomorrow. We are looking at arranging a trip to Perpignan next July, to watch the Warriors take on the Catalans.
The chap on the photo seems a real lively sort of character, always playing, always smiling.
I hope we all have a happy 2014.

No snow here in adelaide
But a very warm christmas to all the folks back home
And echoing toms words thanking all who contribute sensibly to WW
And all the best for 2014

I would like to add my wishes for a Happy Christmas to Brian and his team and all the brilliant photographers who have supplied the great pictures this past year. Also best wishes to all Ex-pats who get to see places of interest in their home town. Merry Christmas everybody.

Something for you all:
Photo-a-Day, What's it all about?
Its the pictures, and there's no doubt.

But for me there's more;
something called 'rapport'

with those who moan,
and those who groan,

those who see
and those, who with glee

express their joy

of this and that
and with a rat-a-tat-tat

give their views
with ahhs and oohs ~~~~~~

Intrigued by the name Derek Platt in Canada.Could it be you have a brother Roy & perhaps at one time lived in Beech Hill? Former Wiganer.

Comment by: Derek Platt on 25th December 2013 at 22:17

Hi Dave Kelly, I do have a brother Roy and I lived in Beech Hill on Dawson Ave and Laburnum Grove. I'm sorry but I don't remember you. They say the memory goes first.

Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year to all....lovely photo Brian...look forward to many more....

Comment by: Dave Kelly on 26th December 2013 at 03:23

Probably nothing wrong with memory Derek...I'm talking about 60 odd years ago & I'm not sure where or how I knew you. St Johns (school or youth club), or Sacred Heart,Thornleigh in Bolton...ring any bells? We've lived in Canada since '66

Comment by: Derek Platt on 26th December 2013 at 17:25

Hi Dave, all the places you mentioned could have been applicable. I attended them all at one time or another. I came to Canada in 1980 and now live in Abbotsford BC.
