Dear Sir/Madam,

Could you possibly help me to find out if a certain person is still living in Ashton or locally, or if anyone knows of their whereabouts ?

To explain, I and my family used to live at No 7, Old Road ( Opposite Ashton Library and next but one to "The Chippie" ) In the late 1950's and well into the 1960's, as I remember it - Now I say that because I now have no real memory, due to being knocked down by a car !!

I DO remember meeting and falling in love with Sheila Thomas, as she was then called. She had long naturally red hair and was stunningly beautiful !! At the time I was serving in the Royal Air Force and being away from home so much eventually forced us apart.

Now I am living in retirement on the Isle Of Wight and to allow me to enjoy that retirement with a clear mind, I would really like to be reassured that Sheila has had a happy and fruitful life and is still doing so to-day !!

If there is ANY way that you can help me to achieve those ends I would be most grateful.

My full name is David ( Prefer Dave ) Hitchen -- My Mother, Eva, used to work in the "Brian Buro" club.

If anyone can give me ANY information to help in my quest I would love to hear from them at any time

Thankyou very much indeed. If I can't ask fellow Ashtonians for help who can I ask ??

D. J. Hitchen
