Hi again
Brian last time I saw him about 35 years ago he was going to drive to austrailia in an old van. daft as a brush brian. I wished I could find him.
Ronni was working in ashton at eavsways coaches but thats ages ago.
Mike still lives opposit the old school on Lilly Lane.
If you ever talk to Kathlee remember me to her please.
We did call that tree the monkey tree now I think on.

Where was Crippins lane?I used to live in Bamfurlong,on Beech Tree Houses,the houses looked out over open farmland and there was a culvert type thing which I heard was called Coffin Lane Brook(never heard of Coffin Lane either)I later moved onto Lily Lane,near to where the post office is now situated,I remember there being a rather good chip shop there before it.

Crippins lane started at Jollie Jacks club was or where the police station is now and if you walked through to the other end and to out at Landgate.

Is that the same Kathleen Worgan who later attended Leigh Girls' Grammar School and went on to study maths at Newcastle University? She married Richard J Packer in Swindon in April 1972 and was most recently heard of living at 6, Manor Place, Frenchay, Bristol, Avon, BS16 1PS.

I apologise for my comment of 06 June. I had my Kathleen Worgans mixed up. If the girl in the picture had a brother called David then she is probably Kathleen A Worgan, born in the Ince district of registration Q1 1947. Her brother David R Worgan, was also born in Ince Q1 1957. Their mother's maiden name was Harraghy.
The girl I had in mind was Kathleen Worgan (no middle name), born in the Ince district of registration Q1 1949. She had two brothers: Harry, born at Ince Q1 1957, and Robert, born at Ince Q4 1958. Their mother's maiden name was Houghton.
