Re: READ ANY GOOD BOOKS LATELY?

I have been reading Harry Bingham's "Fiona Griffiths" novels. She is a South Wales detective with a very different approach to crime and investigation that stems from her teenage struggles with Cotard's Delusion - a rare mental illness that makes sufferers belive they are dead. If you want a very di...

Re: OBITUARIES

Apparently Bewes told the press that Bolam's wife was pregnant. Bolam saw this as a breach of trust and never had anything more to do with him for 40 years. As you say Comrade very sad. Nolic

I have been asked by a friend if I know anything about The Rainbow in Barlick that was a dance hall. I'm sorry I have no more information. Any help much appreciated. Nolic

Re: OBITUARIES

My wife told me last night whilst she was on the PC, not sure which site she saw it on. I similarly cannot find any reports. Can you please remove it until I know for certain. Thanks, Nolic

Re: FORGOTTEN CORNERS

Mention of birds transporting seeds reminds me of a welder friend of mine who was asked to dismantle and remove the old EWS tank from a flat roof at John Cotton's Mill at Waterside in Colne. He went up and had a look and came down and asked the manager what he was going to do with all the fish insid...

Re: FORGOTTEN CORNERS

The food was not good and it was usually lukewarm at best. A total contrast at Ermysted's where the food was cooked and served in a Nissan hut ...

Re: FORGOTTEN CORNERS

Memories are creeping back Comrade. Was Harry a bit of a spiv during the war? If its the man I'm thinking of my dad disliked him intensely probably because of black market dealings. He once came down Garden Street in a big flash car, knocked my bike over and crushed it. He said it was my fault for l...

Re: GOOD TV

Comrade, it is harrowing but I think a reasonable portrayal of what youngsters go through in these situation. Rochdale police and social services should hang their heads for the way in which the treated these young girls. I know the woman who went in to try to sort the mess of children's services ou...
