These parades were a big thing in the past when all the churches used to march from their respective churches, all the congregation dressed in their finery and carrying many ornate banners, into the town centres where a joint service was held to the accompaniment of several brass bands. Afterwards everyone went to a field and celebrated with stalls and games etc.

Sadly, with the decline of the churches and religion in general, these walks of witness are now only performed here and there. The village of Ainsworth is nothing more than a cluster of houses, either side of a main road, but it still has three major churches there, all close together.

Thanks so much for explaining, June - we don't have anything like it here so it's ever so interesting to me! It is a shame that so many little traditions are fading away - the parade and the stalls must have been such fun the community and a way of socializing for so many.

And 'himself' will now wander off and Dave shall appear - huge smile, especially since I think I'll miss our lovely 'himself' !

Yes it was It's funny I didn't feel shy as I thought I would. Dave has nothing to do with the computer so he's a bit bemused by virtual friends

You would not believe how shy and embarrassed I used to be when I was younger, I always found it hard to meet new people. Look at me now, and I can only put that down to age and experience, mainly through work and social activities.
The toughest thing ever was when I first joined the railway in Wales, I knew no one and I was surrounded by people who knew so much more about steam engines and railways in general than I knew about anything much, way back then. But like us here, every one was extremely friendly and went out of their way to bring you into a conversation, regardless of not knowing anything. I now know, having done exactly the same myself, it is a nice way to help you learn.

Yes, Nev. I was a right wallflower when young and would need lots of encouragement to get up and dance anywhere. Luckily the friends I had were much more outgoing than me so they gave me the confidence.

I was also good a putting make-up on and pinning hair up so my girlfriends always had me doing their make-up in the Ladies room before we appeared in the dance hall

Nev might be at work right now but if he calls-in later...Have a good BIRTHDAY - with plenty of Pipe-Time!

June, Sheila was like Dave up to about 12/18 months back. All this 'virtual friends' bit was 'silly' and a 'waste of time' etc. Then, about 12/18 months back, kids started showing her laptops etc. (I'd long given-up in this respect) Now she books international holidays/goes all over/with virtually met friends/shows me which buttons to press at times. But if I show her this page, for example, she runs a mile!

The 'Local Walks' pics are brill. I was on there about an hour yesterday. Thanks for posting.

Condor, I'm smiling because these little magical computers are often frowned upon as a 'waste of time' until one gets a chance to become 'addicted' to them , grin - it's great that your Sheila can now join thousands in saving ever so much time and effort by researching destinations and booking on line, etc . And discovering the world! (To me, they are much like a Library that never ever closes!).

But I can also understand your Dave's bemusement, June - Glen is the same way. He uses the computer to do online financial stuff and exchange emails with his friend and his brother - but other than that, the only time he uses it is to play Solitaire occassionally. I'm not complaining or I'd never get to use the magic machine myself!

Oh Nev, what a long long way you've come from your earlier very shy days - and what a lot of hard work it must have been at first. Just as June felt a 'wall flower' as a girl, being shy must be so so hard, especially when young (where were you when I needed my hair touched up, June - grin!).

Glad you liked the photos Condor. It's great that 'About in your area' section.

Mara, I was very good at doing French pleats, with a bit of back-combing on top. In fact I still pin my hair up now when it's warm although it's not very long

Laughing in delight, Condor as the quality of the photos isn't going to matter a midge, Doug - nope, we'll just be happy to have you post any and all photos! (Always hoping you'll add a 'In Doug's area' stack of photos - hint, hint - grin! ).

Nev, I've been meaning to ask you ... did you start playing as a young child or is it something you started learning as an adult, I wonder?

And June - can you teach me how to French pleat by 'remote control', please? Huge smile! Your hair must be so lovely when pinned up and here I am, the moment it gets hot just pulling it back and up into a pony-tail!

Mara, I started to learn to play in the early part of 1999, eleven years ago. when I was 50. You are never too old to try something new, and although I feel I am perhaps too old now to be a top player, (I can't cope with the speed of very fast music) I can still do OK.
