A day trip from the blue bell north ashton probably to blackpool late 1960's all old downallgreeners. The lady front row 3rd from the left is Peggy Williams the landlady and the lady to her left is her mother-in -law Arthur's mum. The gentleman 2nd from the right with the bald head is Tom Fagan. Can anyone name anymore. Could the coachdriver have been Gerry Lewis.

So it is Gerard, I knew she looked familiar, it was the hair that confused me. I am coming over for a visit in May, maybe I'll see you around.
Happy New Year to you and yours..

Hi Janet, what a great photo! I am fairly sure that the lady pictured 1st from left wearing check coat and dark hat is my friends' Diane and Denise Haselden's granny.

Spot on there Kath I recognised their Gran straight away. Quite a few other familiar faces there too like Margaret Smiths Mum at the front at the side of Mrs. Williams xx

Hi janice, i do believe the coach driver on this occasion would have been tommy hilton, and the coach would have been unsworths of goose green.

Frank Tattum (My dad)is 2nd from left at the back with the bald head. Mary (Mum) is the last lady at the back on the left. They used to join all the Blue Bell trips and loved the days out. Arthur and Peggy Williams were great team as landlord and landlady. I always remember peggy taking orders in the snug and tap room at weekends with her little pinney full of change. My dad called it a brat
