Bilsborrow

A Memory of Bilsborrow

My dad grew up in Bilsborrow in the house next door to the White Bull pub.    I spent many a happy day at my nanna and granddad's house.  My nanna used to be a cook at Bilsborrow Primary School and my granddad was a bus driver.  They were very involved with the community.   Our first born son is buried with my grandparents in St Hilda's.  I love the place, it is peaceful and beautiful.   When I visit to put flowers on our son's grave we always eat at the Roebuck.
