My compliments to the BHF for providing a very mutually advantageous service for all concerned.


Comment by Derek Platt on 21st January 2018 at 00:18
This is typical of a lot of communities world wide.just a shame the furniture has to be left out in the rain. Thinking back I used to walk through an alley off Market Street on the way to St Johns Primary school.


Comment by Dave Kelly on 21st January 2018 at 02:18
Do you recall a blacksmith being there Derek?


Comment by Mick on 21st January 2018 at 07:53
They might get a parking ticket being parked on double yellow lines


Comment by Veronica on 21st January 2018 at 08:58
I can't see the furniture being left out surely- it must be there for a reason - awaiting pick up maybe - the door at the end is open.....I hope not after people have kindly donated it.

Hi Derek are you roy's brother-still in Canada ? remember me?


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 21st January 2018 at 09:32
I bet there's a few bob down the back of those :)


Comment by Derek Platt on 21st January 2018 at 16:09
Dave Kelly, come to think of it I do vaguely remember a blacksmith and also westheads toffees. Bryan Traynor, I also remember you and I think I met you in Wigan once when I visited and that was at the corner of market street and standishgate


Comment by Rubyshoes. on 21st January 2018 at 17:07
Looks to me that they have been discarded, piled on top of each other and carelessly at that and left uncovered in the rain.


Comment by PeterP on 21st January 2018 at 19:09
These discarded sofas are a fire hazard stacked up at the side of the building


Comment by Poet on 21st January 2018 at 19:29
Peter P, every sofa collected by the BHF needs to have a fire retardant tag attached otherwise they won't take them.

The blacksmith's name was Nolan Crawshaw When we had a pony and cart for hawking fruit, fish and veg, we used to take the pony there for her shoes


Comment by Sally G on 22nd January 2018 at 16:44
Because of the way BHF treat animals, I refuse to support them.
