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

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.

Do you recall a blacksmith being there Derek?

They might get a parking ticket being parked on double yellow lines

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.

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

Looks to me that they have been discarded, piled on top of each other and carelessly at that and left uncovered in the rain.

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

Because of the way BHF treat animals, I refuse to support them.
