Newton Heath
« on: 20:18:15, 29/09/20 »
Hi all
Was wondering if anyone can help me!!!
Am looking for anyone who remembers a coal man named Bill around 1964 delivering round the newton Heath area, he use to go in toms transport cafe where my mum worked.
The reason Iím asking is I recently found out that I have a half sister on ancestry
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks Paul.

They've just pulled a bomb out of the Rochdale canal off Grimshaw lane, surely it's not been left there by the Luftwaffe.........strange.  :-\
