    Hi. I run the Facebook page, ‘Friends of Brinscall and Withnell Villages’. As the Dixon lived close to our village, Mary and Terry, would you be happy for me to share your photos and information with our followers? If you look at the site, I write weekly history pieces and would like to include a piece on the Dixon family.

  4. Terry Douglas says:

    Hi Debbie, yes please do, I will join your Facebook group if possible and have a look.
    Still hoping for a reply from Mary…. I wonder if admin can send an email to her letting her know ? My permission to pass my email to her
