Re: Barnoldswick Forces Memorial Gardens

OK, I'm an Offcumden...I realise that some people may have different ideals/ideas but some of the posts on here regarding such a minor issue have directed me to think that there are some funny folk up here.

Re: Gnr WILFRED ANKER, in from the cold?

I was informed by Terry Denham of the "In From The Cold" project that it usually takes a couple of years for the CWGC to arrange a headstone in these circumstances. I reckon Wilfred should recieving his later this year.

To be honest, when I first saw it I thought it was a very low flying plane. We stepped out of the door to see it again, as I said before white and green. Absolutley no noise.

Re: LIGHTS IN THE SKY

We saw the lights last night. They went in a south to north direction and were mainly white with a little green in there as well. I know it was friday night and I may have had a little tipple but we both saw them. Very spooky :surprised:

Re: FORGOTTEN CORNERS

I must admit as being an Offcumden, I really do enjoy looking at these photos. I looked at Kevs link and saw for the first time the old Co-op. A lovely building, what was upstairs?
If it was like my hometown there would have been a ballroom, boardroom and reading rooms.

Stripping.

Can anyone help with information as to where I can get some window inserts from my boat stripped of the varnish on them? Is there a local stripping service?
