Manchester is a great city. So, of course, like the rest of us, we are all deeply saddened by recent events. Teary eyed angered and sickened once again by these attacks when I think of these poor innocent victims and their families.
I have been to Manchester many times, especially when I was younger. My late Father’s family are from Manchester, Preston, West Hartlepool and Bolton. I have happy memories of visiting the Coronation Street set, walking past the Rochdale canals. I love the northern sense of humour, their friendly chats and no-nonsense attitude. This is where my sense of humour comes from, my family up North. Everyone is straight to the point.
I love the music scene in Manchester, my music collection consists of Oasis (I have all their Albums and the singles), The Stone Roses, The Happy Mondays (How can you not love The Happy Mondays?). We were too young to get into the famous club in Manchester The Hacienda back in the 90’s, which has happy memories for many music lovers.
Manchester is the city you have to visit in your lifetime. Best music, best comedians, TV drama and the most down to earth, friendliest people. My thoughts and prayers go out to them.
