Christ Church Bulldogs sitting on a wall
Eating cowmuck penny a ball.

I don't know of any free sites that do this, soldiers could be sent anywhere in the country, normally this would be on their pension record, when my grandfather was injured he was sent to a hospital in Suffolk, though in reality it was a large house turned into a hospital. In Ashton there was Ryecroft Hall and the building that became Heginbotton girls school on Church Street for ordinary soldiers, the house that became York House Hotel and Mottram Hall were for officers. If you give me the details I can look on Ancestry to see if there are any records for your soldier, a lot were destroyed during bombing in WW2

I have just heard that Ashtonian54, Ian, passed away on July 5th in the US, I don't know the details, but I'm sure you will all remember him as once being a big contributor on here. RIP Ian.

Only a small percentage of women are getting the bus pass, just those who were born up to November 1954, the ones really affected by the pension change were born up to 1970, I'm nearly 63 and I'm not getting one from the new mayor, I have to wait another three years for my pension when I was told I would get it at 60, my pension age has been increased twice, it's very unfair.

Talking about Ashton / Work on new building recommenced
« on: May 04, 2018, 06:39 PM »
Building work has recommenced on the new town centre building. Scottish building company, Robertsons, has taken over the project and the new finishing date is November, that is barring any major issues with previous work. Priority is being given to the college building, so it can open for the post Christmas term, Wilkinsons, so it can be open for Christmas and the job centre which should have moved in this month. Here is a short video I took today of the external work being carried out on the college building.

It appears it was removed to create discussion and debate, which it has.

I honestly don't know what the problem is, there is nothing sexual or erotic about it, it is what it is, we can't hide all works of art because the women are naked. Are they going to start putting clothes on naked statues next.
