The Man Maureen Willis married was called Billy Gregg from Bloomfield Crescent. Know this for certain as he was my best mate. My name Harry Agnew and attended Billy and Maureens before they moved to whalley range in Mancester in 1972. He was always in my Mothers house in Eastbread Street where I lived with my brother Ernie. Hope this is helpful Ruby.

Hi Ruby nice to hear from you. last I heard of Billy and Maureen they had split up. Do you remember my cousin Vic McKeown, he was in touch with  billy until couple of years ago. Think he is still in Manchester. If I hear of anything will let you know. By the way Im being nosey but were you Ruby McCallister. All the best Harry.

Sorry Ruby thought you were Ruby McCallister. You have just back some good memories of the times we all stood outside the cafe. How is life treating you. Are you still living in the East. Last time I was over for my Mothers funeral I hardly recognised the place but did walk down Eastbread Street and around Bloomfield Crescent and district. I am now living in Cardiff S. Wales been here since 1980. Billy came down and visited us here a few times but as I said havent heard from him for couple of years now. Keep in touch. Take care. Harry. :)

Hi Ruby, hope all is well with you. Didnt know you were living in Coventry thought you were still in Belfast. It shows when you lose touch you really dont know what happens in peoples lives. Sadly Ernie passed away in 2000. Was sudden and really knocked us all for six. I know for certain Maureen had one child but dont know if she had any more. Think it was about two years after the wedding that her and Billy broke up. Dont know if Billy has a new partner last time I spoke to him he was still single. He moved out of whalley Range but not sure where too but know its still Manchester. I know his job took him around all parts of the country. But next time I speak to my cousin Victor McKeown will ask him if he has any more info on Billy or Maureen a he did keep in touch with them for quite a long time. Just to change the subject (as the old memory is going) is Carol Anderson the quiet Blonde one that used to hang around with us. Hope to hear from you soon Ruby. All the best Harry.
