Cutting the Cake

Was it a birthday or just a bit of a do? We would love to know. Can we have assistance with a date, names or the occasion? Margaret Atkinson advised that the young lady cutting the cake had a mother with a shop in High Row, Loftus; whilst Tony Money added: “The lady cutting the cake is Kathleen Heselton, and the family did have a shop at the bottom of High Row, number 50. Kath was a member of the Youth Club Badminton team and the cake could be for winning an award.”

    Thank you for this photograph, I was, for my sins the secretary of this Youth Club when Mr Harrison was the Leader in the late 1950’s.
    This organisation helped me to grow up and have a sense of responsibility not only for ones self but the area around you!

    The lady cutting the cake is Kathleen Heselton. Everyone just called her Kath.

  • The lady cutting the cake does indeed look like Kath Hesletine, I well remember visiting that sweetie shop at the bottom of High Row. A regularly went there when I was visiting my granny Sarah Cook who lived at 20 Hartington St.

    Heselton is the correct spelling.
    The cake could be celebrating winning an award, as I believe Kath was on the Youth Club badminton team.
