Something new for me, posting a blog!
I was born in Tawd Bridge and lived very happily there, attending Digmoor school and chapel, until I was 10 years old. My family and I migrated to Australia in 1958, and I have been living here off and on ever since. I came back to live in Upholland for 4 years or so in the 1970s, and have been back for shorter visits on several occasions since.
While I was growing up in Australia, I was obsessed with the idea that Iwould return to live in England at the soonest opportunity. I was homesick for England and Tawd Bridge all the time that I was away!
Anyway, as it usualy happens, time moves on and you get involved in your life, your work, your family and other interests, and suddenly before you know it, more than 40 years have passed!
I still have a deep and abiding love for the home of my youth, and still miss the place; which is why I visit websites such as this quite often. A little nostalgia once a week or so makes me feel closer to “home”.
In starting this blog I intend to write about my memories and feelings for the old days in Tawd Bridge, Digmoor and Skem. I hope that whoever reads this may perhaps leave a comment, it would be wonderful to make “virtual” contact with people who belong to Skelmersdale.
