Eva Draper and Rev David Earl

This photograph featuring Eva Draper and Rev. David Earl (Methodist Minister for Brierley, Grimethorpe, Hemsworth, South Hiendley and Ryhill) was taken in the new vestry of Brierley Methodist Church in 1975.  The occasion was the retirement of Eva from the job of caretaker of Brierley Methodist Church, a job that she had taken on 'temporarily' in 1941!  Having done this job for 34 years, including the scrubbing of old-fashioned floors etc. and getting up at 6 a.m. to light the boiler, with a payment of 6 shillings (30p) per week, she had decided to give it up.  She was presented with a transistor radio.  However, since no one was willing to take it over, she took the job again and did it from 1976 to 1995 at two pounds per week retiring again at the age of 86.

Information supplied by Mary Harrison (nee Draper).
