Dear Miss Cooke
Congratulations on your success in the Final Examination. It does credit both to your own hard work and to the College, and I am all the more pleased about it because I know that it is no mere ‘flash in the pan’ but that your teaching will reflect in days to come the high standards you have set yourself.
With all fond wishes,
M. I. Bain
This letter is one of a number of items sent in by Barbara Taylor, Trix’s niece and herself now headteacher at Burscough Bridge Methodist School. We’ll have more from Trix Cooke soon!

Note the date, for the fourth Saturday in June – the date of our usual Annual Gathering – is found to be inconvenient. Please let me know by filling up and posting the enclosed card at once whether or not you will be able to keep Festival with us.
