A HELPING HAND

ADDED 17 APRIL 2007

I was very pleased to read about the late Mr. Jackson Morris in the April issue of the Digest. He was the Head Teacher of the Weeland Road School in Knottingley, where I was taught from the year 1929 to 1937. He was smartly dressed and walked briskly to school every week day. He encouraged the children to achieve a good education. His motto was, "If at first you don't succeed, try and try and try again!"

On Sundays he attended the Ropewalk Wesleyan Chapel and he was also a member of the Pontefract General Infirmary Committee. When he heard that my Dad was very ill, suffering from rheumatic fever, he came to visit our home. He promised to apply for a recommend to have him admitted to the Royal Bath Spa Hospital in Harrogate. After receiving treatment for several weeks, thankfully, Dad recovered and was able to return to work.

My mother and all the family were very grateful to Mr. Morris for his help.
