    was known as the man of the Quay he spent his childhood first going to school at the St Georges School on the side of the River Lune and spending his childhood roaming the Freeman’s wood area. I was born on the Marsh and the wood was a big part of my childhood we spent most of our free time in the wood and along the river bank ,( dawn to dusk.)
    Please keep up the fight to keep the wood for the people of Lancaster and for our future generations.
