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.”

Many thanks to Emma, Pamela and Carol for the updates.
