All the torrential rain and flooding in Cornwall recently prompted me to dig out the newspaper clipping below. This is an extract from the local paper in Clitheroe (Lancashire) published in 2000. This particular piece looks back 50 years to 1950. My dad, Graham Dawson (1930-2008) gets a mention – perhaps his first claim to fame.
To say my dad was a bit accident prone is perhaps an understatement. Mind you the accidents were not always his fault. However, enough for now – I will post again about my dad and mishaps.
