DANCING CLASS MEMORIES
22 FEBRUARY 2006
would just like to thank you for the prompt delivery of the Digest. My
sister and I really enjoy reading it and we were really surprised to see
we were mentioned in the December issue, Focus News, for January 1971. It
was so interesting reading it but sadly Ethne is no longer with us but we
had lots of happy times with Miss Greens Dancing Class. Do any of your
readers remember going to her classes? She was a good teacher.
was also interested in Nigel Huby’s ‘Growing up in Knottingley’,
especially his granddad having a fish and chip shop. As I read it reminded
me of how I did the self same thing helping my mother at Morley Fisheries.
I sued to fetch fish from Castleford on Saturday’s as during the war
they only delivered fish on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. It brought back
lots of happy memories of the days before I went on the stage.
and Mrs Driver, who had a fish shop on Womersley Road, had a son, David,
and one Christmas he was Joseph and I was the Virgin Mary in our school
play which was a laugh as we were both from fish and chip shops at the
the Picture Palace and the memories of Robert Wood, I remember him well.
It is so nice to be able to keep up with all the news from Knottingley –
the memories come flooding back as people write about their lives in the
town. Thank you once again.
