Old photograph stirs memories

Have your say

THROUGH your columns, can I say how interested I was in last week’s old picture of Hobkirk School.

The teacher, Miss Thomson, is a very dear family friend. My mother took her to school on her first day. Miss Thomson, now Mrs Marion Dickson, recently celebrated her 104th birthday. On a recent visit to her home near Castle Douglas, where she still lives alone, she recalled many happy memories of her teaching times in the Borders at Lilliesleaf, Hobkirk and Newcastleton.
