Jack. I am keeping the forum going because there are a few people who don't want to follow other members to Facebook, where discussion about Ashton is very much alive, and also because some people enjoy reading the old discussions from the times when this was a busy forum.

Perhaps it would be better for me to pull the plug and let the forum fade into history?

Hi all, Hi Too Shy, The off switch is in YOUR control.

Actually, the off-switch is in my control.

I do agree with much of what you say, Jack, and I have let you air your views freely, but I think there has been enough already of the present topic. After all, this is primarily a place for chat about Ashton, rather than politics.

Off-switch engaged...

Thanks, Karen. The forum has never been the same without your mum.
Ten years? Eeek!

Daniel Adamson with family...

Adding to this discussion somewhat belatedly, I have just been reading that William Shaw, of Bardsley Brewery, was living at Riversvale Hall between 1847 and 1868.

Riversvale Hall was around half a mile from the brewery.

The problem was reported to me and I have reported it to the web host who seems to have resolved the issue.

That area was called 'Penny Meadow' long before that part of Katherine Street was re-named 'Penny Meadow'.

"Popular" may be an overstatement!

Hello Butty. Message sent to you.

Royal Mail is proposing to close Ashton's sorting office. The most noticeable effect this will have for most people is that they would in future need to go to Oldham's sorting office to pick up parcels or other items that could not be delivered.

Local MPs Jonathan Reynolds and Angela Rayner have set up a petition against this proposal.

If you may be affected by this, please feel free to sign.
