Does Anyone Remember The Christmas Parties For Children At Richards Knife Factor

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

It was the highlight of my 

Childhood, being invited to the Christmas party at Richards.   I was 10 in 1956 and had never seen such a spread or been with so many children, all enjoying the festive event.  There was entertainment too, though I don't remember what.  I only remember the treats, the crackers and the little gifts, and my utter delight at being there.

I went to a couple of Christmas parties at Burngreave Liberal Club around about the same time and recall the same feelings.

We're was the Burngreave Liberal Club. I only ask because my dad was a member of the Nether Edge Liberal club, and went there often.
