The building at the top of the picture with the advert on was a grocers called Hendrey Millings. I worked there as a young man and had my first encounter with the opposite sex!!!
My maiden name was Iris Potter, I went to school and church in Burtonwood. I live in America now. I have lots of very good memories of my friends in Collins Green. I get so homesick, I will always be a British citizen.
I remember as a youngster my mum and dad talking of the Queen's forthcoming visit to Warrington and how the statue of Oliver Cromwell was to be covered so as not to upset her. They eventually moved the statue to a less visible place and the side of the Academy.
