My 15 minutes of fame - with Sir Jimmy

You can’t imagine how surprised and thrilled I was to hear from a relative a little while ago about your article in the recent Looking Back section of your newspaper (‘The day Sir Jimmy charmed pupils at Liversedge School’).

He also sent me the page it was printed on. I am the young 14-year-old – Kathryn Hamer – in the picture with Sir Jimmy Saville.

I certainly remember that visit by Sir Jimmy and have often recalled the day to my three children over the years.

I have lived in Canada for the last 38 years so unfortunately they don’t know who Sir Jimmy is.

It was nice to show them the actual picture and article in the newspaper and relive my ‘15 minutes of fame!’

Thank you!
