Greater Manchester Reports
Ashton-under-Lyne, Greater Manchester
Review of Ashton-under-Lyne by Bob Smith on August 11th, 2008
Many congratulations to those responsible for the wonderful floral displays around the borough. I have lived in the Stalybridge area for nearly forty years and I have never seen Tameside looking so clean and full of colour. A massive 'well done' to all those whose hard work is on show! Same again next year please.
