What has happened to this wonderful forum.
« on: May 07, 2016, 10:35 PM »
I have not had a computer for three years or more when my son left and took computer with him.  In 2012 there used to be such a lot of chat going on.  Now I have a computer there does not seem to be much going on.  Come on Ashton we must have more to chat about.  What happened to The Birdcage.  What happened to Smokies at Bardsley.  Who remembers Mossley Road School for girls.  Who remembers Wa terloo Christ Church School Youth Club. Is anyone there still alive. I am 70 next and I love my memories of my friends in Waterloo.  Gail Parker was my best friend but she  moved to Australia and then there was Josie Gorman, Margaret Gorman.  I live in Yorkshire now but still visit my parents grave in Dukinfield Cemetry as often as I can.  Let me know if you know me  Margaret Broughton

Hi Glad to see you back.. Lots of the people that use to be on this site have moved to Facebook Ashton Now and Then. There is a few of us who still come on but it is not as active now Fudge

Hi Margaret, most of the topics you mention have been covered but feel free to start another thread if you wish, like most people interests change over time, kids, grandkids and even great grandkids take up spare time, I don't fit any of those categories but my job places different demands on my time so I don't get as much time to come out and play as I once did, rest assured this is still a wonderful forum and you'd be amazed how many 'hits' it still attracts  ;)
My pet hate is passing. When my time comes, Iím going to die, Iím refuse to ďpassĒ. I want people to say Iím dead. Brown ******* bread. Any ****** that says I passed, Iíll haunt.

Margaret - as I see it there are no 'younger' Ashtonians joining it the conversations -  either they are not aware of this forum or are using Facebook to post comments and photos. Some of the regular posters you remember on here don't post as often now, have passed away or in a couple of cases, 'thrown a wobbler' and left. I do think it's important to use the forum as often as possible - it would be a great pity to lose it

I stop posting when I found that only one person ever commented on what ever I posted, so there seemed little point in it, I recommenced posting after Fudge asked me to do so as she doesn't follow me on Facebook, something I am happy to do.
