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.

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.

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.
