The gathered former Co-op workers needed to move round the room to try and meet their former colleagues. The occasion saw a vast turn out of former staff, all keen to exchange stories and meet again.

Hello Again

At the reunion, this was a familiar scene, recognising an old friend and meeting again. Friendships were renewed and contacts re-established after periods of lost contact. The whole evening was enjoyed by all.

Arrowsmiths Yard at Redcar

Arrowsmiths Yard at Redcar

This view of Arrowsmith’s Stonemasons yard at Redcar, the image dates from 1927 or 1928 (from the memorial in the picture which is for Eliza Martha Dunford died 1927). We are still trying to locate exactly where in Redcar the yard was. Craig tells us: ”Redcar Lane opposite cemetery main entrance . There was a stonemasons operating there well into 1970s possibly later. A single detached house was built on the plot in the 1990s.”

Many thanks to Craig for that update.
