Just found this pic the day before I visit Ken who is my cousin who hasn't been very well lately. I have lived in Stockport since 1960 but have fond memories of Wigan. My Dad, Tom Maggs was Foreman at W.M.I & worked there from being 14, Ken,Terry & Roy (Leather) all worked with my Dad.I was at School with Wilf Aspey & Fred Bamber.

An email from an old mate, Ted Porter, made me look at Wigan world. I really do remember when this was taken and the good time we had. Just hope Ken, Wilf, and Ray are ok
