I believe I met Brenda at Hindley and Abram G.S.
Did she attend?

I suppose it was my uncles enthusiasm for motorcycles that rubbed onto me. As a youngster he used to take me to Oulton Park for the Motor Cycle races,to see Bob Mcintyre and the likes and the bug bit. My father Norman wouldn't let me have a Motorcycle so I was 28 before I learned how to ride them with the Lancashire Police Traffic Department and I couldn't wait. Here I was getting paid for something that I really loved,and this opened up a whole new world to me.
