Thanks Grego.

Hi letti, I hope you enjoyed you Holiday...Drop me a private one if you like and let me know your dads name, I'll see if it rings any bells. I have a clearer picture of my dad if yours needs a memory jog.

Why ain't there a Church section on here? If we've got a Springhill/Karachi section on here, why not Church?

The shop on the corner of John Street was Hamers...a general grocery store....opposite was Mrs Bushes fish and chip shop....other corner a toffee shop, can't remember the name (Smithies?) on the other corner opposite Church Kirk School was a grocer called John Holden...He had a daughter who took over the chip shop when Mrs Bush retired (Pat Holden)

I remember a mixture and fish was then 1 shilling and two pence.
in todays funny money that is 6p and no vat.

A mixture and a fish was fish chips and peas....in a basin which you provided.

Happy days

Not Clitheroe I'm afraid unless that was a special.

The worst shift on the Ribble operated from the Blackburn Depot was a 4.15am start and 13 trips Gt Harwood - Ossy...The vehicle used on this shift was fleet No: 1494...a Leyland PD 1 with a crash gearbox...quite an experience....would sort the men from the boy's now...That was in 1964.

Yes I knew them all, your Grandad as well, Albert.
Your dad was known as Little Brian Yates only because he was smaller than than the other Brian Yates who lived at the top of Church Kirk Lane opposite the church.
I knew Irene and Rita as well.
If you tell them that you have been speaking to Agnes's son Roy they will remember me.
