Are people from Standish really odd ?

The Oddfellows are a not for profit organisation with Branches across the UK that provide social activities, care and support to our members.
This is the Earl of Surrey branch, see:-

My dad was a member of the Oddfellows I remember going to a Canrival/Sports Day organised by the club and won a race winning a cricket bat<g> God that must have been 60 years ago and I can remember it like it was yesterday. The event was on a field behind the old Brewery.

I remember that building from when I worked in Standish many years ago and saw it again recently when visiting Standish with a friend. Tom, please don't forget about the full version of your Walking-Day article in Past Forward. I am itching to read it!

Comment by Dave Marsh on 25th April 2013 at 15:36
When I was a child,Oddfellows owned our house and many more in Wigan.


Comment by Ken R on 25th April 2013 at 18:14
I didn't know you were an Oddfellow, Ernest.


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 25th April 2013 at 20:31
White for the goodies....black for the baddies !!


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 25th April 2013 at 21:00
Ken R, I`m not an Oddfellow, just an old fella!


Comment by alan lad on 25th April 2013 at 21:29
Ron i remember the after carnival event on the field off school lane ,sure it was held on that field more than once ,it would not be allowed on there today even if there was no houses on due to H&S about the top and bottom lodges i bet.

Comment by cindy on 22nd June 2013 at 16:39
Sadly The Odd Fellows Hall is now up for sale.

My great grandfather is Ben Park JP and his name is on one of the stones fixed in the building. Don't know much more about things. Would love to know more about him. I lost my dad his great grandson in January 2008. Any body that can give me information I would love to hear from you. Val.
