31 Aug

Sally Webster learns that past victories can become future defeats...

31st August 2005: Sally Webster discovered that she had burned several bridges when younger daughter Sophie tried to begin lessons at Weatherfield High after the summer break. A year previously, Sally had had a run-in with teacher Mr Lewis when he failed to recognise that he had a "gifted pupil" on his hands in the form of Rosie Webster and pushy mother Sally instead sent her prodigy to fee-paying Oakhill Grammar after telling Mr Lewis exactly what she thought of his "failings". Unable to afford two sets of school fees, Sophie had no option but to try and get Sophie into Weatherfield High but she neglected to enroll her daughter using the correct procedures. Mr Lewis was now the head and remembered his run in with Sally the year before. He told her there were no places available and Sophie would be placed at the bottom of the waiting list. Sally furiously protested that there would be a place within days as some of the other kids would just be hanging out at the precinct by the end of the week but the head was adamant: "the gates of Weatherfield High are closed."

Jerry Booth in 1972

Jerry Booth was a Coronation Street resident and longstanding partner of Len Fairclough in building firm Fairclough and Booth in the 1960s and 1970s. Jerry arrived in the Street in 1962 and served his apprenticeship with Len, the elder builder taking the naive youngster under his wing. A nervous but kind-hearted man, Jerry hoped to marry his sweetheart Sheila Birtles in 1963 but ended up marrying the imprudent Myra Dickinson in haste instead. The Booths had lived at 13 Coronation Street for six months when debt incurred from Myra's compulsive spending on Hire Purchase forced them to give up the house and move in with Myra's parents. They separated in 1965 when their daughter was stillborn and Jerry returned to Coronation Street, where he became Len's business partner. In 1968, Jerry's divorce came through and he left the Street again. Three years later, he returned to find work and was taken on by Len, who was now in partnership with Ray Langton. Jerry was effectively Len and Ray's housekeeper at No.9, where he was given lodgings, but in 1973 after he rescued the business he was made a partner again. He died suddenly from a heart attack in 1975.
