Kennings, Leadmill Rd

Recommended Posts

Did anyone work at Kennings in the mid 60's? I used to clock in but didn't work:hihi:

 

A friend of mine worked there as a salesman. Eric Treweek. Sadly he died after years of suffering with Alzheimer's, about 3 or 4 years ago.

I remember Eric Trewick when I was there, he was a nice man, always a friendly word.

My ex brother in law worked as a salesman at Autoways during those years. His name was Peter Jones and he played trumpet in a band as well. So pleased he became an ex brother in law.

Hello I'm Caroline and I started at Leadmill Road in 1973 in the typing pool. Loved it. Eric Treweek was a lovely man! Other salesmen that I remember were Rodney Smith, Ken Watson, David Mallender (I think). Mr Baum was the General Manager. What is your name, probably can remember you? 🙄

Started there in 79 and served an apprenticeship, I think 'we' 4 in total were the last apprentices taken on at Leadmill rd.

Hello just seen your comment. I'm Caroline and I started in the typing pool in 1973 then became secretary to the service manager, so I must know you! I used to sort out the training courses for the apprenticeships and I think you're right about being the last apprentices that were taken on. We moved to Tenter Street in 1982. Did you work there? What is your name and what were the other apprentices' names that you remember. ☺

My first serious girlfriends father worked at Kenning around 1960/62 - Percy Whiteley lived on Ben Lane, Wisweood. probably aged around 60 at that time

 

Worked in the service dept. but would be doing paperwork in office and checking in the actual works side
