Dennis Rhodes

Dennis is a born and bred tyke, having lived all his life in the Wakefield area. 
After retiring from Local Government service in 1991 he started to take an interest in Yorkshire dialect and soon afterwards joined the U.3.A. group at Ossett.
Encouraged by the then leader, Len Wilde, he tried his hand at writing in dialect and as well as his poems and short stories, has written one or two sketches and short Pantomimes for performance by the group. When Len resigned as leader, Dennis took over and held the post for about five years, finally standing down in order to find time for other activities.
