The exhibition was a great success, with many visitors
on all three days! We left a comment book for people to
leave their memories of William Holt. This are the
comments we received:
"William used to tie the reins of his horse Trigger
onto a rail outside the old tripe hut at Tod market."
"I knew his sister-in-law. She told the story of him
coming to her home in Halifax. He was drunk, so she
said, and sent him on his way."
"We shared a garden fence with Billy for 14 years
(1962 to 1976) and found it interesting. There were dark
times when voices were raised and the door would crash
and Billy would emerge audibly muttering - words not to
be repeated! Also happy days when Billy and Trigger
would roll on the grass together in delight. We saw
Billy and Trigger both set off and return home from
their trek around Europe. We remember Billy making a
home in the barn with Trigger - he was quite a man,
indeed shy. We have his books - my mother bought the
earlier ones at the door from Billy. We remember him
well" - Roland and Joan Sutcliffe.
If you have any more comments about Billy that you think
would fit well on this page - please send them in!! We
hope to have another William Holt event soon!
