Yesterday was 38 years since the Pope visited Heaton Park and said an open-air mass. I wonder if you were there? I seem to recall the owners of what is now a child-care centre on Middleton Road erecting seats on the roof of their bungalow and inviting family and friends to sit there for an uninterrupted view of his arrival...only for the procession to be re-routed at the last minute! Is this fact or a "false memory"? Tricia.
