ARE you a former resident of Accrington who has moved abroad and who wants to get back in touch with people still living in the town? Do you know of friends or family who have moved overseas and you want to try and track them down? Well here's your chance ...
In this new section, we're giving an opportunity for people who were parted when locals decided to make new lives overseas to make contact once again.
If you are an ex-pat, who wants to know the whereabouts of a pal or relative, send us the details and we'll post them up here. The same is true of locals - let us know if you want to get back in touch with a local who has left these shores. You never know - they might just visit this site, read your message and you could be reunited.
Alternatively, ex-pats can write to us simply if they want to let the folks back home know what they've been up to, how life overseas is treating them, and what they miss about Accrington.
All you have to do to take advantage of this service is to e-mail the Observer's web editor Lee Swettenham by clicking here , making sure you include your name, contact details and current whereabouts, and he'll post the messages up on this section.
Don't forget, you can take a delve into Accrington's past by visiting our 'Looking Back' section ... click here to step back in time.
