I know Eddie Paul and his son Michael. Eddie was there in the late seventies and Michael later on throughout the eighties.

My dad  Joe Black worked in tip top becoming manager from Arthur hull. remember THE BIG DUMMY  and Ernie Sales. I was on the bread vans 1969--71 then again 1975--76,  I have a model of one of the sunblest vans to be handed down to my gran children, few of the WHITE CHIEF  breadmen left.

Hi I worked on Sat mornings & in the summer of 70 or 71. My dad was Dick Simms. I drove the forklift for a while with disastrous results!

I worked onsite driving an excavator about 1985/86, they where expanding then. Did a lot of the ground level and drainage work for it, I'm sure it was built on an old industrial tip.
