  1. It's so good to read something not totally doom laden.... https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-52103967
  2. Yes it was called Whittles Tannery and made the leather that covers the benches in The House of Commons and Lords. I had the ""pleasure"" of working there in 1980's😖 think I stuck it out for 3 weeks!!!!
  3. A minutes walk past The Packet House.where todays Job Centre is.
  4. The pub I was trying to remember is...... Ta Daaaaa The Leigh Arms !!!! Cheers Sid 👍
  5. It was half way along Mersey Street about where DW Fitness is now.It was a couple of terraced houses knocked in one building.We always went into a juke box room at the back of the building.it's about 50 years since I was last in so the exact layout is a bit sketchy.
  6. No that doesn't ring a bell . I think there was a clog making shop next door to it. And opposite was a weigh bridge, public toilets and bus stops for Lancashire United and Leigh Corporation. I remember all that but not the blinkin pubs name 🤪
  7. It was a common thing back then .. Blue Bell next to The Central.. The Royal Oak next to Seven Stars.. The Vine next to The Cattlemarket.. Lower Angel next to Pelican ..And The Victoria Vaults had one to it's right hand side roughly where todays job centre is but I'm blowed if I remember it's name.(Damn that's going to bug me now🤥)
  8. Well at least one bit of good news to appear this week. Let's hope she is back with her husband soon........................................... British-Iranian charity worker Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe has had her temporary leave from prison in Tehran extended by two weeks, her husband has said. The 41-year-old was released from Evin prison on 17 March because of the coronavirus outbreak. Richard Ratcliffe also said his wife's file had been put forward to the Iranian prosecutor general for consideration for clemency.
  9. Abergele will be the furthest I'll be going from now
  10. For sport lovers YouTube has a wonderful choice to watch BBC rugby league games from the past 20 years is a good example and now most media providers have YouTube apps built in they can be watched in the comfort of your armchair.
  11. On Talking Pictures movie channel(sky 328)(Virgin (445) at 9.00 tonight there is a film called This Sporting Life. It's a story based around Rugby League .. I've seen it a few times and it's worth a watch 👍🏈👍https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/this_sporting_life ... https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/this_sporting_life
  12. Let us know what it's like. Mother Hubbard is only a few days away at Chez Latch 🥺
  13. I have been avoiding supermarkets for the past week in the hope that the panic buying hysteria would fade away and some normality return to the shops and shelves. Has anyone been in and noticed any changes for the better yet? As sooner or later I am going to have to visit the shops again
  14. Once this is all over I do wonder what effect it will have on British holidaymakers and whether they will slip back into old ways or maybe consider vacations nearer home for the next few years after all the UK has some wonderful places to visit that have been virtually ignored for the past 20 years.
  15. I sent the questionnaire form on econsult at 11.00 am last Friday got a reply by 11.30 am that morning and collected the prescription for my problem from the chemist by 3.00 pm same day, that is impressive! Whether I was fortunate or that is the norm I can't say. But it certainly reassured me that somebody somewhere is getting it right.
