The Price family, Marian, Tony (ma and pa) Janet and Stephen taken just before walking day
'59 or '60. It was taken outside our house 30 Belle Green Lane. The little girl leaning on the gas lamp is one of the Dean girls (Josie Or Marie). I can remember the man coming round every night to light the lamp.

Hi Carol, yes i went to Ince Central and was in same year as Bill. Your name is familiar but it was a long time ago.
Not seen Bill for about 35yrs but we've been in touch by email through this site. Lovely to hear from you. Hope all is well with you. Do you have any old school or family photo's you could put on here?

Hi Carol, Yes, i remember some of the teachers from junior school. The ones you mentioned apart from mr heaton (no recolection) plus the Headmaster Mr Lowe. I'll make it my business to come over and get to one of Bills gigs soon and hopefully we can meet up. I see you also went to Rose Bridge. Have you seen the photo of the football team in the 1st year?

Hi Carol, thanks for the info about Mr Heaton. I've just had a look at the photo and can honestly say i have never seen that man before lol. I'm afraid my memory is very selective these days. I can remember a younger teacher who took us for PE. Dark haired man who was quite good at sports himself. Not got a clue what his name was though. I'm sure Bill will remember him, he (in his own words) has a 20-20 memory.

Hi Stephen, trying to remember last time I saw you. I can remember taking you, my dad and Harry Welch to Abram Labour Club (or somewhere close) so I could borrow his car for the night to take my girlfriend out. Came back later to pick you lot up again. That would have been about 35yrs ago.
Hope you are keeping well.
