Paddy's mother-in-law comes back from shopping to find Paddy stamping around the house in a terrible rage,She asks him what is wrong  and he replies"Isent your Mary an email this morning to tell her I was coming back early from the fishing trip,I got back to find her naked  in bed with Murphy,inflagenty,so i told her we were finished" his mother-in- law said "Now Paddy keep calm there must be an explanation,I'll have a word with her and find out" she goes to phone her daughter and eventually returns and says"There I told you there would be an exoplanation.she never got your email"

I remember the SHMD No.6 I used to get on it when there was room at Kershaw Lane,you could get on it up to Edge Lane but not after,although you could get off.The same applied to Maynes from Dale Street,you could get off but not on till you got to Edge lane,Happy days.I thought the Trolley bus was brilliant,quick and quiet ,and not smelly like diesel buses ,would you have ever  have believed that we would have trams again,they everything comes roumd eventually.

Hi Joyce,Lovely to know you are still here,I was a bit worried.I will reply to your email in due course,what a nice surpise.I am afraid Ashton was not a place I frequented except for the market,the Gaumont,and the baths,as well as the Premier were I learnt to dance.My late wife went to Higginbottom's Secondary Modern School in Ashton so she would probably know more  about the place than me,although in my working life as a sales rep I had several customers in the town.I have already in formed my mate Alf in  Aussie of this site and he will probably be joining.I have not nhad much chance to look around the site yet but will do so very shorthly.Wityh regard to the golf,still playing 3 times weekly and will do so as loingt as I can hold out,gets more difficult at 85..Keep well and take care.

Hi all,
   I have just found this site by accident,I have a manmates friend in Aussie and today we were reminisciing about our old dancing days and Ashton Palais cropped up so I put this in my browser and lo and behold this site turned up,what good fortune.I must admit that me and late wife only went once but found it too big and impersonal we preferred the Premier,Chick Hibbert's,Co-op,and on big band nights BelleVue,we also went to the Lido on Ashton old Road.What prompted me to join up was the remark by Kennetho about Ferguson ,Palin,both my dad and Grandad worked there,I lived just off Edge Lane.I treasure my memories of those bygone days and the happy times we had,dancing then was totally different than now,and I used to walk my late wife home from Chick Hibberts to Droylsden 2/3 times a week and never gave it a thouight,imagine the teens of today doing that,we even walked home from Belle Vue.I see there is another contributor I know,Joyce from Canada,what a surprise,I notice that she has not contibuted of late I hope she is OK.We did email a couple of times then silence,it must have been something I said.I will keep my eye on this site from now on.Keep well everyone and take care.
