Yes, you"re right cashman, but that was a place of worship, not a hostel.

Our Cashy likes a flutter & a couple of bob for a placing seemed a good shout. (that & the chance to rescue his immortal scoundrel soul).

Think they had a place on Charter Street at one time, towards the willows lane end, looked like a prefab

Quite right Jaysay. All us kids from Crown St, Ranger St,
Brown St, Canning St. used to go there on a Sunday morning/Afternoon about 1955/6/7. Sing a few songs, Say a few prayers and you got a drink and some cake or something to eat. We even got days out to Southport and Fleetwood with them.

Just wondering Mog when it changed into an Islamic centre, the centre used to be a house in the adjoining street.

It was a long time ago, but my husband thinks the painter was Ronnie Ashworth, he also knew the chap on his left but cannot remember his name.

Re: The Deck

I remember Ernie lee and John Duffy on the "Deck", and a guy we called Ernie Glasses also Alan Sutcliffe. I don't recall t being grammer school boys - quite the reverse, it was fast and dangerous types that my mother certainly would not approve of, and who I had to dream up complex "excuses" for going past the "deck", to suss out who was hanging out there. There was also an older man called Arnold, who had a cottage up near Spire Farm at the top of the "green" part of Sandy Lane. This cottage had a stone carving dating from the 1600's and was reputedly where Oliver Cromwell once stayed. Arnold was famous for riotous parties, with "guests" from the visiting West Indies cricketers, who first introduced us to illicit smoking substances! Arnold also rented a house at the bottom end of Burnley Rd, near the then English Electric showrooms in Abbey St(now Age Uk! - Does anyone else recall Arnold? and the parties?....
