A SERVICE TO THE COMMUNITY

ADDED 16 SEPTEMBER 2007

I was amazed to read that the Digest Magazine has had some adverse comments. I think you and Pamela are doing a most excellent and worthwhile job - carry on with the good work!

Although I was not born in Knottingley, I married a Knottingley lass (Kathleen Cartwright) at Canterbury, Kent, in 1942 when we were both in the army. After serving in the Normandy Landing, through to Germany, I came back to the UK in 1946 and lived and worked in Knottingley. I was Group Works Manager for Jackson's Glass until moving to employment in Harlow, Essex, in 1968.

I was also a Knottingley Urban District Council member, Server of St. Botolph's Church, manager of the Church of England School, governor of Knottingley High School and member of Pontefract and District Divisional Education Executive, having to resign from them all on leaving the town.
 
I have a son and daughter-in-law, grandchildren and great-grandchildren living in the Snaith area and many in-laws living in Knottingley and Doncaster. Kathleen and I look forward to receiving the Digest Magazine every month, keeping us in touch with the town where we spent very many happy times. I hope we will be receiving your magazine for many more years.

Well done Michael and Pamela, you are doing a service to the town's community.
