Have your say

RECENTLY I showed a school photograph which I said was taken at Clifton St John’s School in around 1950 and the children were sat with their teacher Mrs S Cawkwell.

Well, the Echo was no sooner off the press and into the newsagents for customers when I received some early telephone calls and one e-mail pointing out that I had made an error. Mrs P Clayton of Brighouse also put pen to paper to point out the error.

The teacher was certainly Mrs Cawkwell but the school was Victoria Central School and thanks to the combined efforts of Harold Sutcliffe and Kathleen Chilton I can now name all the children from that day.
