I was christened at Rose Bridge and have walked in the Walking Days,although I walked with Ince Parish a couple of times too. You have posted some lovely nostalgic Ince photos, Aitch; it's good to share memories.Thankyou.

Hello, Dorothy, none at all, I'm afraid.Eventually, someone will probably post some on this brilliant site. I have been amazed at some pics of Ince that have appeared.....places I thought I'd never see again.

Dorothy, I wonder if the church itself holds any photos of past Walking Days? Or perhaps you could put a notice in the church asking if anyone has any? Just a thought. Good Luck! Irene.

Hi, Dorothy, you could try asking in "Past Forward" too, although I think you will be too late for the next issue as it is due out any time now. I appealed for photos of Ince Green Lane a few years ago in PF and a lady lent me two walking-day pics to copy, which I have put on this site.I do hope you are lucky, and please post them on the Album if you get any.Irene.

I have a few of Rose Bridge Methodist walking days, but only from around the time of this one and later, so they would be in the early 80s.

No she only started going after we were married, and that was in 1966, we were married at Ince Parish, she started at Rose bridge after that, before she came to Ince she attended St Lukes in Orrell,

Dorothy, Alice only started going to Rose bridge after we were married and that was in 1966, before that she was still a member of Orrell St Lukes, although she didnt attend much, she wnt to Ince parish for a while, but only so we could get married there, and after that she started going to Rose Bridge, but it was a while before she started her Sunday School class, also about this time she started being a part of the youth club group, which she carried on with until she got too ill, that I think upset her more than anything.
