Jubilee taken at Alltami Bryn Methodist Church"

Bryn Methodist Church, Alltami, Buckley

July 1956

Mr Ralph Catherall was a foreman at Castle Fire Brick who had a reputation as a part-time barber. Believe you me, he wasn't! He used to hack at your hair with a pair of clippers which I think he made up from spare parts! The cutting blades didn't seem to work in unison. One day, he was operating on me when I thought, "I've had enough of this." So I left him and ran home with only half a hair cut. When I got home, I had a good hiding off my dad who had to complete the job with of pair of scissors. I was about eight at the time and can remember it vividly to this day.
