I'm also voting UKIP this time and after speaking to my son and partner today  they are of the same mind and I think a lot of people will be doing the  same and choosing alternatives from the usual 3 parties.

Talking about Ashton / Re: Old Refurbished Market Hall

I also been today as off work at moment till wednesday and although the character of old market isn't there its nice to be able to go there still. I bought pork pie and some burnt muffins and salmon paste. The friendly market workers make up for having a different building. You just can't beat northern people for their customer service as just back from ely cambs. and notice difference!!!!!

I have mixed feelings about my time at AGS but there were good times. My favourite teachers were Mrs Brett Mr Brayne Mr crompton and Mrs Hetherington who also taught my husband at philip howard glossop. I always felt sorry for Mr shepherd science because he couldn't cope with the discipline and this was picked up by pupils.

Ashton's Night Life / Re: Recommended Ashton pubs
« on: May 13, 2009, 10:51 PM »
when we want to go out to a pub we find either AShton utd. or Lord Nelson, Nook Lane very friendly and reasonable prices but must admit it's cheaper but not sociable to buy from supermarkets and we like to talk to people so it's good to have a nice local.

I was at parochial from '66 until July '72 and would love to hear from people from the same. Mr Gillyatt? was the headmaster then and had a book published for the 11+ practise made perfect to enable us to go to grammar school and a lot of us did but I wonder if it was an advantage for us sometimes or not.

hi big sister! Better make sure I make no mistakes here lol. You are right. We can be a bit lazy on the old grammar but I must admit when texting or chatting we do resort to the fast way of talking as it doesn't seem like the old way of communicating. We just need to remember how to converse properly when needed 8)

I went to parochial school as well and not got any photos either. My sisters had photos from their previous school before they came to ashton but I dont remember ever having any done. I was the youngest and it was my first school in 1966.
