SUCH A NOTE­WOR­THY WO­MAN

Lancashire Life - - FRONT PAGE -

The Molly Hay­dock story in your Novem­ber is­sue was a fas­ci­nat­ing read. Hav­ing es­caped the noose for steal­ing a horse, she’s trans­ported to Aus­tralia and be­comes one of the colony’s most prom­i­nent citizens, end­ing up on their $20 note. Just goes to show you can’t keep a good Lankie down! I sent it to my daugh­ter in Syd­ney and she was amazed the wo­man on their ban­knote was not from home but also from just up the road. The rhyme asks us to re­mem­ber the 5th of Novem­ber but, for us, it’s the 27th that’s the most im­por­tant date, writes Vi­jay Ar­o­gyasami.

It’s Lan­cashire Day, an op­por­tu­nity for Lan­cas­tri­ans to show the world what they love most about their county by shar­ing their thoughts on twit­ter us­ing the hash­tag: #Lan­cashire­day
