Great photo Kath! Your Glenda looks fab but Wow what a face you're pulling hahaha! Love it lol! Jelly Sunday, such good memories. xx
Hi Sue, you're right about the face ha ha. Still looking for more of those elusive band photos, I will put them on as and when I find them! LOL
Great photo Kath. I was walking with the Boys Brigade on this day. Wasn't the Girls Silver Band originally part of North Ashton Girls Guildry and like the Boys Brigade used to have band practice in the school hall next to the Blue Bell?
Yes Lyndon you are spot on there, Nurse Stokes formed the Girls Guildry and then the Band, and we did rehearse in the village hall next to the Blue Bell. In fact my brother Dave Roberts was also in the boys brigade and would be walking that day too I think
Kath, I remember Dave very well both in and out of the BB. We all used to make swings in Bluebell Wood. If I remember correctly your family lived in Birch Grove near Kenny Livesley. I gather from Albert Thompson's comment on another photo that Dave is no longer with us, so plaese accept my condolences.
Hi Lyndon, lovely to hear your memories of our Dave, and yes tragically he was killed in a car accident in 1985 whilst he was living in america - we flew him home and he is buried at Holy Trinity - thankyou for your condolences
hi kath thanks for reply looked at trinity walking day,brings back memories.your dave was the last one of your family i saw,going back a few years, i decided to have a look for you all, and went in the bluebell one night to ask around and dave appeared at bar,he didnt recognise me until i told him my name, had about ten minutes or so before he had to go, that was quite a few years ago, sorry to hear he s past away.good photo of you both.when i can get the hang of this computer i ll stick a photo on of some of the mates i play guitar with these days.were having a reunion on the 14 nov at the turks head in St Helens with one of the folk groups i used to play in,so will take my camera with meand take a photo before i get carried away(they have 8 real ales on )and they certainly make you sing and play better.anyway will talk again later all the best, keith
