Melvyn Biddulph - The Artist

I think I must have been about 12 when the new art teacher joined the school.

Miss Wiggins' hair was blonde, in a beehive style. She wore mini skirts, sometimes with tassels. She would arrive at the school on her cobalt blue Vespa in hairnet and rollers. I think she was the best thing to ever happen to me. She told me I could draw. Got me to go to Saturday morning classes and encouraged me to join the Rochdale College of Art when I left School just before my 15th birthday. She had then, apparently, saved me from a life working in some factory.
