Christmas parties are not just for children to enjoy - here is a happy smiling party of people obviously enjoying themselves.
This is one of the T.F Firth’s Carpets retired employee’s Christmas get-togethers. Sadly little did they or anyone else locally know at that time the mill was destined to be closed and within just a few years demolished and to become just a fading memory.
Whilst the years have slipped by there will be some retired employees still around who will have had some happy times at these Christmas parties. Lots of good cheer and no doubt sharing a few laughs with some old work mates.
