    Ian pretty sure I remember Sid calling her "Kathleen," so I wonder where "Katherine" appeared to be her name, please?

    Kathy says what posts she had held but she doesn't say what her contributions and achievements have been; doesn't say what value she has added to the businesses. Comes across as a bit of a passenger in all jobs. A steady Eddy but not likely to take any business forward and in today's world this is a serious lack. Sorry Kathy - there are likely to be more inspired candidates than you my dear.

    She's far too reasonable / gullible for me. Wouldn't hire here.

    You are right, JPBS, but there is no chance whatever that this will be accepted.

    According to The Archers Encyclopaedia, by Joanna Toye and Adrian Flynn (2001), Lucy Perks "passed her eleven-plus exam and went on to Borchester Grammar. There, fatefully, her form teacher was Kathy Holland..."

    Re Martin G's machinations.

    Ever heard of ' Constructive Dismissal' Kathy?

    Get yourself a decent industrial relations lawyer.. Maybe that nice lady who's married to your local vicar can help there??

    Here is the info on Lucy Gemmell (nee Perks) ..
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b006qpgr/profiles/lucy-gemmell

    AS you can see she went to Borchester Grammar .. and was taught by Kathy ..

    I was very puzzled when around the end of the 80s Kathy's school was amalgamated into another .. for it was independent!

    Mieteka - the SWs forgot what school Kathy worked in when they wrote the SL about the schools being amalgamated .. she originally worked at Borchester Grammar - where Lucy was. No wonder Heidi got confused ... I was confused too.

    Borchester Grammar was a Direct Grant School which became independent rather than become comprehensive. Lucy was very clever and won a scholarship to the school .. Some of this is explained in:

    The school she taught at became Borchester Green through amalgamation with other schools. I used the current name, as I assumed any requests for references would need that, rather than the historic name.

    According to The Book of the Archers Kathy worked at Borchester Free School (p235) Not Borchester Green as this blog states. Hedli was one of the writers so she should know!
    Not very impressed when mistakes like this occur in an official BBC piece.
