Memories of our Meeting on 14th May 2003
|Ann Nightingale keeps an eye on things as everyone went in to lunch.||There was an excellent and plentiful buffet, very decoratively got up. It was greatly appreciated by everyone.|
|In the morning the weather had been changeable but
by mid-day it had settled down to a fine sunny day. So after lunch
people could go out and take the air and get photographed.
Here are the patriarchs, Horace Morris and
|... and here are the matriarchs, the ladies from Holy Trinity School.|
|Back inside Tom Larkin gave the afternoon talk about housing conditions in Bilston. He spoke about the appalling conditions which councillors like himself, Jim Speakman and Alan Bickley, had tried to counter, and which residents like Horace Morris and Ken Gretton had fought against. But, as he also showed, there is much we can laugh about ... now.||It's funny, isn't it, how all the best parties end
up in the kitchen?
Alan and Alma chat with Ann Ramsbottom, who had been hard at work all day.
It was good to be able to remember, to celebrate, and in so far as it lies in us, to honour, the tenants and residents who gave so much to improve the lot of others.
