Letters to the Editor

Great Evening

A big thank you is extended to Mr. Stan Naylor (one of our older residents) who spoke at the well -attended evening at Kirton Town Hall on Wednesday 4 October.

There was a large display of old photographs of Kirton District, which prompted a lot of discussion and Mr. Naylor related many stories from his life growing up in the area.

It highlighted how many changes there have been over the years, some to great advantage, like improved sanitation and communication. But others to detriment, like the loss of a great many business’s and the decline in community spirit. Everyone enjoyed the opportunity to reminisce with old friends and acquaintances.

And Thanks from Stan

Hi Sam, I wish to thank the Town Hall Committee for inviting me to give a talk on Kirton District on Wednesday 4th. October.  It was a pleasure to talk to those of you who attended, you all kept so quiet.  I trust that you learned something of the district and the Wash estuary, and how we lived, worked and played in the 1920’s and 30’s, vastly different to the presant time with all the mod-cons that makes life so much easier. 

Many thanks also to those who loaned me photographs and the boards to display them, very much appreciated.
Yours sincerely,

Stanley Naylor.
