HERE is a great black and white picture from times gone by that we found in the archives.

The photograph depicts officers from the Leigh Athletes’ Volunteer Force, according to the records in the local archive collections.

Do you have any information about who is in the picture, and when it was taken? Feel free to send us your feedback and we can look to include it in a future edition.

Pictures can be of anything relating to local heritage or history such as old school pictures, sports line-ups or public events, or anything else that would be considered suitable.

We will consider using pictures taken in Leigh, Atherton, Astley, Tyldesley, Golborne, Lowton, Hindley, Hindley Green, Glazebury, and surrounding areas from a different era.
