I can remember my mum telling me you get the bus at the temperance bar in Ince but I can’t remember exactly where the shop was. Ido know it was near our house at rose bridge.

Was it at Ince bar? or Darlington St


"Dandelion and Burdock and Jesus"

Phyllis Collier is one of the original WAGs – and she's proud of it - but at 100 years old, she couldn't be further from the high fashion and fast living of the prominent WAGs of the 21st Century: the wives and girlfriends of England's football team. For in her early years, Wigan-born Phyllis was a preacher for the Christian Association of Women and Girls and once had hopes of becoming a missionary in China – even starting to learning the language. Phyllis is proud of her Christian faith and puts her long and healthy independent life down to 'dandelion and burdock and Jesus'. Born in Greenhough Street, Wigan, on June 11, 1907, Phyllis had a strong upbringing in the temperance movement. She signed The Pledge in her early teens and the only alcohol to pass her lips has been sips of wine in church at Communion.
