Appeal to find Ted’s old mates

AN AUTHOR is appealing for people who worked on a school magazine with former poet laureate Ted Hughes to get in touch.

Steve Ely is researching Ted’s early life growing up in Mexborough as part of a book entitled ‘Ted Hughes’s South Yorkshire’.

He wants to hear from anyone who worked on Mexborough School’s magazine ‘The Don & Dearne’ from 1940 to 49.
