Court8PlaqueMay2018
Bill speaking at the unveiling of the reinstated Court No. 8 Plaque on Aughton Street (with the Mayor and Mayoress, and one of the managers of Morrisons) in April 2018. That was pretty much his last "public" act as Chair; he stepped down at the AGM that year.

Bill with the late Dr. Tom Massam (a member of ODFHS) at one of 2011 meetings; the book is in the ODFHS library and is the story of the life of Doris Forshaw
SandwichBoardAug2010
The sandwich board. This was Bill's idea; he wanted one made to promote the society at the Park Praise event in 2010 at Coronation Park, so he got Kate Hurst to make it and paint the letters.

Bill (far right) at Parbold in July 2016, when a few of us took part in a canalside walk from Parbold to Burscough Wharf. (Andrew Scarisbrick and Kate Hurst are also in the shot, on the right.)
