From David Boothman: My mother Jessie Roberts was born in Hebden Bridge 79 years ago and lived on Oak Street. She went to Stubbings School and I would be interested to know if there is any film footage from her schooldays, what was happening then - has Stubbings School a web-site?

From Andrew Wilcock: Does anyone have any information on or remember the travelling boxing booths that used to visit Mytholmroyd Gala in the early 1960s?

From Ross Craney: Does anyone have any photos or information on Mons Mill, Todmorden, circa 1970 or earlier, particularly of the entrance to the mill and Hare House from Burnley Road?
