Where you are: Local History - Tickhill in 1960s
  Tickhill in 1960s


George Frederick John Burchby, known throughout his life as Jack Burchby, wrote most of his newspaper articles for the Doncaster Chronicle and Worksop Guardian  during the years 1951-1970. After the Doncaster Chronicle combined with the Doncaster Gazette in August 1963, Jack focused on writing for the Worksop Guardian. He pasted the articles in five old maths and chemistry exercise books which he had used when a pupil at Doncaster Grammar School in the 1920s: an interesting example of recycling, giving brief glimpses of many algebra and science exercises as illustrated on page 5 of the attached Occasional Paper.

The Paper focuses on his articles written throughout the 1960s.
