Mac this is a song that reminds me very much of Vincent. I dated him long ago. He had just bought a M/bike from the shop at Newtown. He died on his way home when someone pulled out in front of him a Union Bridge.Sad

I remember hearing of a lad hitting a lamp post on the way to Beech hill from Rogersons. Think it was the son of Mr. Rogerson.

I believe Millers of Wigan closed down in the mid 80's after the proprietors son was involved in an accident on a motorcycle and sustained life changing injures that led to its demise.
