Teacher made biggest impression on my learning

4:33pm Monday 8th September 2014

I agree wholeheartedly with the sentiments expressed in Margo Atkinson's letter published in last week's paper. Miss Weatherall taught me English Language and Literature at Ilkley Secondary School and I shall never forget my early impressions of her. The commanding and cultured tones, big permed hair and sensible shoes all contributed to a formidable no nonsense persona. In fact, the lady was absolutely terrifying. I still remember the occasion when she ordered me to her towering desk in front of the class and demanded to know why I had written the date in abbreviated format (i.e. 2.5.62) at the top of my essay. My stammered excuse obviously sounded feeble; Miss Weatherall's neck and face reddened and she went ballistic.

Lions put on a safari hunt around hunt

Wharfedale Observer: Granny Wrights Little Monsters team collect their prize for winning Otley Lions Safari hunt (a Toyland voucher) from the manager of Toyland Otley, Lion Judy Pears and the world famous Chip the Lion

2:39pm Tuesday 2nd September 2014

Otley Lions recently organised a Safari Hunt around the town. No wild animals were endangered in the process: the “hunt” entailed following a set of clues to track down images of a lion in shop windows. The participation rate was very high and all the competitors had a lot of fun. As a valuable by-product, the shop windows of many Otley businesses received unprecedented attention.
