Hello, I'm writing with a request. I'm married to Susan Bromley, daughter of Audrey and Gordon. Susan is now one of the ministers at St Marks church. I run a film night once a month at the church and its regularly attended by some of the people shown on some of the Wigan World walking day photos. I read that you'd converted the cine film to DVD, and wondered if there was any possibility I could get hold of a copy to to show at the film night? I hope you don't mind me asking, its just I know there will be many who would love to see the old walking day again. Many thanks, Mike Fulford.

I am pretty sure that I am the lad on the right - I did have a friend called Colin Butcher and remember April James from School. Colin if you remember me I am on FB

I am moved to tears remembering these glorious times. Colin Butcher was a great friend of mine in my childhood. He lived on Victoria St next to his gran and grandad and my grandma Lily Walsh lived on the corner with Norfolk St. I have lived in the South for 30 years now in Henley On Thames but nobody could ever take my roots or memories away from me
