Yes - but in the offices, from late 70s to 2002.

 

We knew lots of the brewery lads and bottling lasses.

Yes I know them but have only seen them since the brewery closed in 93. We stayed on at Millsands and Peel house intill 99 then got moved to shepcote Lane until we all got made redundant in 2002. did you keep in touch with any of the lads who made the move to Samlesbury. I still have contact with andy claxton.

I have seen Menzies, steph and one or two others but folk have dissappeared.

they were fab times - the fun we had!

My mum worked at Shepcote Lane in the 70s and 80s. Her name was Helen Nixon.

After she retired she did the brewery tours at Bridge Street. Does anyone remember her?
