By the way, the woman in the blue cardigan at the beginning of this film is my grandmother, Mary.

Eric Hall was my grandfather. He would have been so thrilled to have his films preserved in this way and that people were still enjoying them. The customs and local crafts of Yorkshire were so important to him. Many people in the area of a certain age I am sure will remember his toyshop in Saltaire as indeed I did as a child.However I didn't know about the Pot Leek society!

Eric was a character and half, when I was growing up in Silsden, Eric would tell us young 'uns off if we didn't do as we were teld, failing that, he'd frighten us by threatenin to tell us parents. Later, he made an impact in Silsden by being a respected gardener, being officials in numerous clubs and organising the AIREDALE POT LEEK SOCIETY. Happy days!
