RE: William Cooper (Billy)
Me neither sorry. I do check the forum fairly regularly in the hope someone will have commented. Incidentally the Farington and Leyland social club that is in Derby Street collapsed a few months ago, the gable end caved in and it just looks derelict now. My Uncle Les Watton used to compere there, Bingo etc. he would be devastated if he's looking down on it.

Thanks to Noel for his interest and posting on this forum, a shame to have seen it`s decline over the 13 years I have been here on Crete, it used to keep me in touch with Leyland Preston area, my parents and grandparents place of birth and mine, Keep it up Noel and I hope more interest is taken by local people.
