Join our free workshops and share your stories of growing up in the 1950s,60s,70s. Help us create three short films reflecting this period. Drawing upon your anecdotes, your photographs and something you have kept from the era. Matt Haworth (www.puppetman.net) will create ‘My Generation’ short films to be projected in Brighouse.

I spotted this a few days ago - the demolition men were demolishing the old Co-op Petrol Station kiosk on Lawson Road. I am sure many readers will remember calling in. I wonder if any of the staff that used to work in it are still around ? - It would be great to try and locate a photograph showing the inside of the kiosk, possibly with members of the staff on it as well..
