A chance meeting with an early Corrie actor

I was showing people around the exhibition of Corrie things at Daisy Nook today when a man came across to thank me for bringing back so many memories for him.

It turned out that he appeared in  episodes 5 and 6 as part of a children's choir from Oldham.  Now, I have read about this choir in the past on Corrie fan sites and they've always been described as coming from St John's, Lees, Oldham but he insisted that they were from St John's, Werneth, Oldham.  He recalled filming as being a great experience and the cast being great fun.  They were treated to lunch in the canteen and were taken into the Rovers set where they were served pints of non-alcoholic barley 'beer' as a joke.

He still had copies of the scripts - and many memories!
