Church Visit

Church visit

Lilian Ingledew and Tom Jackson are pictured whilst visiting St Gregory’s Minster at Kirkdale. Kirkdale’s most famous monument is the ANGLO-SAXON SUNDIAL situated just above the main doorway under cover of the 18th century porch; still much visited today the church is a peaceful haven, well worth visiting .

Miss She

Miss She

Butlin’s Filey in the 1970’s I think; did you go, do you remember all the competitions there used to be? The Miss She was a fiercely fought one and on the left of the photo is Eileen Hyde sadly coming second. I can describe her outfit because I crocheted it, dress coat and hat, peach was the main colour with stripes of white at regular intervals. I as very proud of making that outfit, sadly I no longer have it and it wouldn’t fit if I had.

Can You Remember Her Name?

Can You Remember Her Name?

Time changes us all and it is sometimes difficult to remember names. We have all been in this situation, asking a friend if they can name a face and then been relieved that it was who ever we thought it was. At the reunion this happened many times and always with a happy out come.

Will You Have Another?

Will You Have Another?

An evening enjoyed by all; the chance to enjoy a drink, chatter with old friends and remember the happy days working at the Co-op.

Sheila Enjoying the Reunion

Enjoying the chance to meet old friends was Sheila Cocks; our question is which department did she work in? Derek Miller tells us: ”I recall Sheila working in the Co-op hardware Department, which is now the Employment Office. Her manager was a man called Cyril Bacon. She later went on to pursue a career in retail at Uptons in Redcar and M & S in Middlesbrough.”

Many thanks to Derek for that update.
