  1. Hi I started working for Dunford Elliott in 1966 and was there until they moved to Vulcan Rd in 1980, I was a foreman at Dunford Elliotts on Chippingham st and was in fact one of the last to move . I headed a team of men to run down various orders at Chip st before we moved entirely. I loved working at Dunford Elliotts and although I was at Hadfields until they closed down it was never quite as enjoyable as previously had been. I was in charge of the bar finishing when we moved to Vulcan Rd and had to endure picket lines to keep working . Enjoyable times
