    Champions League miracle.

    Care to give us an update on your opinion of your marvellous new manager ? lol Tough to be positive on the back of a pair of 4 nil thrashings I suppose.

    We shall speak their names

    This is going to be a very long thread. Cataloguing all the people butchered daily by religious and political ideologues of all kinds just isn't possible.

    Salford at home

    I was watching the two matches shown on sky sports and was surprised at the warrinton/salford score line that came up and wondered if some body had put it in the wrong way round. Obviously not, i just hope that this does not prey on the minds of the players for the next few matches and makes them try too hard to force a win.

    Winwick Hospital. history, photos and recollections

    I was a nurse at Winwick Hospital in the early 1970s. There used to be a website called Winwick Remembered which had a lot of photos and reminiscences but it no longer exists. There is a Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/98498968505/ .

    Salford at home

    The Wire carried on where they left off against St Helens last week, getting turned over 12-36 by Salford in a display that was arguably their worst of the season so far. 8 of Salford's points came from penalty kicks which gives some taste of the way things went, but Wire were generally slack in all areas throwing passes straight into touch on at least 3 occasions. A very bad day at the office.

    Pity Khan khan't. PS: Believe actress Emma Thompson has just taken a trans-atlantic flight to join the protest; leaving a huge carbon footprint behind her; which tends to sum up the hypocracy of these middle-class snowflakes. 😉

    Just doing their job, keeping the peace and not antagonising people. Result is that there is a rowdy but peaceful demonstration, nobody throwing bricks, nobody swinging lump of wood or iron, nobody setting fire to shops or looting and nobody getting injured. They could have waded in with batons,tear gas and the like and would have been condemned for police brutality by the same people who accuse them of not doing their job.

    Also John ,you could try the Newton-le-Willows facebook page. I should think there will be some ex Vulcan employees on it.

    You may already know this but I just googled and there is a website for the Vulcan Foundry. The site contains copies of ALL the Vulcan Magazines from 1948 to 1962. There are photos in some of them and mention of staff etc but unfortunately they are not searchable so you'd have to read through each. The website also has a few videos too (Vulcan on Film) and a whole host of other sections too. May be worth a try anyway. Here's the link http://enuii.com/vulcan_foundry/index.htm

    Have the villains been given amnesty to make room in the cells for the protesters ?
  20. Looking for a photo of my granddad Thomas Mitchell who lived at 41 Bewsey Street, Warrington, he worked at the Vulcan foundry and retired from there in the 1950s , he died in 1970 at the age of 87. If anyone can remember him or has any knowledge of where I could get a photo of him I would be over the moon. He was married to Rose Hickman nee Bracegirdle in 1940 so there is possibly a marriage photo somewhere. Regards John

    Hiya

    Hiya I've changed the settings so that you can ALL now delete your own attachments more easily. Same 1st 3 steps as I posted above ie 1) At the top right of the screen you will see an icon showing your forum name and picture...Click on that2) A drop down menu will appear saying 'Content', 'Profile', 'My Attachments' .... and more options3) Click on 'My Attachments'. This will open a screen showing thumbnails of ALL your attachments .... but now you have a little 'bin' icon at the right of each attachment so you can just click on the delete button to zap specific attachments if you don't need them now. It will delete the attachment from your original topic post too though so just be aware.... I HAVE ALSO INCREASED THE PERSONAL & INDIVIDUAL STORAGE AREA CAPACITY ALLOWANCE from 500kb to 800kb per person. That should do the trick

    I have to wonder where all these protesting "eco-warriors" work, when trying to stop everyone else getting to work ?

    Personally i would leave them alone if they are glued to a heavy object. Very difficult to get food a drink if both hands glued to something. Also difficult to attend to other bodily needs.🤫 Police only need to keep people away from them for 24/48 hours for their own protection after which they can let their friends try to get them free. The police only need to keep the peace, they are not obliged to remove idiots who superglue themselves to a heavy object by way of protest but they are tasked with keeping them safe from harm, which includes their mates trying to pull them free at a later time.
