After Emma Wright told us: ”W. F. Robinson was my great grandad”, Pamela McVay told us: ”I am Emma’s auntie and W.F. (Wilf ) Robinson was my grandad, and T. (Tom) Robinson was his brother. Wilf also used to look after the Cricket field and my nanna (Ethel ) used to make the cricket teas.” Carol Barwick told us : ”And I used to ride on the cricket field grass cutter with him; they lived next door at Hillcrest.”
