MARTIN'S BANK PONTEFRACT

ADDED 21 OCTOBER 2006

Thanks for this months issue of The Digest - Pontefract edition. My wife complains that she canít get any sense out of me until Iíve read it from cover to cover!

I see from your editorial that some people are a little disgruntled about the price increase. I could never understand how you managed to keep the price to £1.00 considering the quality of the paper etcÖ Keep up the good work - I canít wait for the next issue.

The article about Martins bank, reminded me of an occasion when my mother, who used to go to martins every Saturday morning to deposit cheques etc. for the business of J. Hardcastle & Sons, haulage contractors of Tanshelf, was unable to go one Saturday to deposit and collect cash for the drivers wages.

My Dad, who was usually working, had to go, but the counter staff didnít know him and refused to pay, so they had to fetch the manager to verify who he was! It tickled my dadís sense of humour and he often referred back to it!

Jim Hardcastle
