    John, Mr Tarpy, was my teacher in my last year at Oakworth Primary. He was the best teacher I ever had and I will always have the fondest memories of him. His slipper and ruler for when we were bad, his rendition of 'the grandfather clock' on the accordian, to which I know all the words even now at 51, and his unflagging determination to teach us all something. He inspired me, and many others I am sure. A good man. May he rest in peace.
