Photograph of form 2S, 1961/2 with the class teacher Mr. Soulby (centre). The lad on the left who looks like he was a teacher was in our class and the same age - David Rice, a number of others I can't put names to?
I hope this loads!
Best regards

Decade-old Cheshire councils look for stability

The main political parties will always find a way to stifle the progress of smaller or fledgling parties, the system is geared to keep them at the top of the tree.

Manchester Chat / Year of the political minnows in Manchester?

This could be the year that smaller parties really make an impact in Greater Manchester, with Bolton being the place to watch.

The new Farnworth and Kearsley First party really shook up politics in the town in 2018, taking three seats from the ruling Labour group and now, another new party is hoping for similar success.

Horwich and Blackrod First is standing candidates on a similar hyperlocal platform.

Labour is already under pressure, having lost its majority earlier this year after a member quit the party.

It is still clinging to power with the support of some independent councillors, but further losses would mean deals have to be done and smaller parties may suddenly discover they have a much louder voice in Bolton.




Further gains?

Trafford was the scene of the story of the night in 2018 as the Conservatives lost control of their only local authority in Greater Manchester.

It has since been run as a minority Labour council and the party needs only a couple of gains to take overall control.

The Conservatives will be hoping to reverse their decline.

Manchester Chat / LAPIDUS FAMILY
« Last post by Daralyn Rennick on 00:40:25, 15/04/19 »
Hi,

I have been building my family tree for about 25 years and always had problems finding my Grandmother's family due to her and her Brother having been put in an orphanage when she was 9 months old. They were born in Boston, Mass. and due to things which I don't really want to go into here, they were brought to the UK to live with their Father's Lapidus family in 1894.  They ended up in an orphanage as I said, but I've been trying very hard to find Lapidus family, not for any other reason other than for the tree. 

My Grandmother's Lapidus family lived in Manchester and owned a Matzo factory and today I found that they also owned chip shops and restaurants. I have no idea where in Manchester these were but I wondered if there are members of the Lapidus family who owned those businesses on this Forum.

I would love to hear more about the family and their businesses as we know next to nothing about my Grandmother's family.

I am hoping so much that there are members of the family on here. As I said, all I want to know is family history for the tree and not after anything more. I know sometimes people can get worried when people are trying to find members of their family who they don't know. 

I did a DNA test on Ancestry. com and it came up with a massive amount of Lapidus people from all over the world but it's hard to see how we are related.
