    I have a photograph of Bill Main playing the bagpipes at the Holly Tree on the leaving of Ray and Doreen Happy to share it). Can anyone shed any light on who Ray and Doreen are and also when they left?

    Please learn to spell. Him does not have a e in it, Crewe has two e’s.

    I won’t even begin with the grammar!

          My mum, Margery Phillips, knew June Burgess as a child. Mum used to sleepover with her sometimes at the Holly Bush when her mum (my grandma Lucy Phillips) worked behind the bar. I would love to contact June if possible to hear her memories. I think I may even have an old photo of her and mum!

      Dear Geoff, my mum, Margery Phillips, was a friend of June’s as a child. Her mum, my grandma, Lucy Phillips used to work behind the bar sometimes. This was before WW2 when mum and her parents moved to Manchester. I have an old black and white photo of Mum and June as young children. I would be happy to share a copy with you or June.
      Kind regards
