I have no doubt the children in this photograph will remember this special visitor with his back to camera as he talks to them.

It was Monday January 31, 1994 when the Prime Minister John Major and local MP Sir Donald Thompson visited Firth’s Carpets.

On his arrival in to Victoria Road, Bailiff Bridge and before being taken by senior representatives from the company for a guided tour a crowd had gathered which included children from Bailiff Bridge school and the Prime Minister took time out to speak to them.
