Wedding Anniversaries

Service Awards


Young Sharon Chapman, of 22 Emano Street, may have every reason to be confused for in this picture she is the youngest of four generations on both sides of the family. She is held by her mother and also in the front row are her grandmother, Mrs R. L. Chapman, and father. At the back are Mrs M. Alborough (great-grandmother), Mrs R. M. Gledhill (grandmother) and Mr R. Chapman (grandfather).

After Don Merritt, managing director of Kirbys, had presented Joe Scott (25 years), Charlie Costello (15 years) and John Rhodes (10) with watches to mark their long service to the firm, Roy Trewern, the longest serving employee dropped a bombshell for Don and Mrs Merritt, when he presented them with their own long service award - a silver tray, jug, and 12 crystal glasses, a mark of appreciation from his staff.
