Training Centre

Parents in discussions with  an Instructor at the Apprentice Training Centre, Skinningrove Works in 1974. We asked for help with names and our readers responded. Many thanks.

Barbara McBurney tells us: ”I worked as secretary in the Training Centre at Skinningrove Works, this photograph was taken before 1974, I believe it was around 1967/68, Mr Lambert is on the right speaking to apprentice Norman Myers.  With his back to Norman is Arthur Willis, Training Instructor speaking to two mothers of the years intake of apprentices, the mother first left, whose image is only half visible, is Alice Arkless mother of Stewart Arkless, who was an apprentice fitter at the time.” Kev Harvey tells us: ”Barbara is indeed correct the the lady next to Arthur Willis is my mother Barbara Harvey; I was an apprentice fitter in that year’s intake. An excellent place to do your apprenticeship, many thanks. Kev Harvey.”
