Good Memories Of Westhoughton - a Memory of Westhoughton.
We moved to Westhoughton in 1956 when my father took up a position at Metal Box. I went to the Senior Girls School. Valerie Evans, Joyce Hartley and Kathleen Ellison were my friends. One of my fondest memories was the Empire Cinema which we went to on a regular basis. On Saturday night we would go to the first house, sit in the double seats along the side and wait for Miss Ashton to come along and shine her torch to make sure we weren't misbehaving. We used to meet up at the Tram Shed and we spent hours in Westhoughton Park, just walking and talking and enjoying our freedom. I wish my children and grandchildren could have experienced our childhood. Good ol' days they were and I think of them often.
