William was Borough Council Foreman for many years, a long serving volunteer fireman, a member of the Foresters Lodge and, I am given to understand, a regular at the :Star and Garter". As far back as I (Neil Stewart) can remember, he had a number of model T Ford tourers but I cannot recall it being used for other than Sunday drives. Travel to Nelson was by steam train or Crouchers buses. At a later stage there was a Rover 10 tourer.
