Did Anyone live in Pendleton during the late 60's and early 70 's? Does anyone remember the Nugent family who lived in Brentwood, Eccles old Road during the late 60's early 70' s. I was friends with Christine Nugent. She lived with her Mum, and her Aunt Nora lived in same St. She had a sister Angela who lived in the Salford flats and a sister Bridie who lived in Kearsley. We had great times then.

Does anyone remember a girl called Mary who lived in the Cheetam Hill during the late 60's and early 70 's. Mary worked as a waitress at various cafes in Manchester City centre, including the Gay Dolphin cafe on Piccadilly. Now it's the Piccadilly tavern. It's not much to go on but I've forgotten her surname. She was from Co. Cork. Any info appreciated. I think she would be in her late 60's or early 70 's.

Does anyone remember a Mr Andrews who owned the cafes Espresso Bongo near Victoria Station and the Gay Dolphin cafe on Piccadilly. I was wondering if he is still alive. He owned both cafes in the late 60's and early 70 's. Plus others. Any info appreciated. Thanks

Great result last night, but it isn't over yet. Once again, we gifted the other lot one of our speciality 'Comedy Of Errors" goals. That defence has got to be overhauled in the summer. But, on the plus side, we actually managed to convert a penalty for the first time since the overthrow of Edward 2nd, or so it feels, anyway.

So far, so good. A steady nerve in the second leg, then bring on the Dippers in that quarter-final tie...
