As promised here are a couple of photos of some of the staff from the 'Glove Factory'.

The photos were taken after the company won an award for it's exports.

Sorry I don't know the date.

If I find any more pics I'll post them.

Don Hutton was a machine mechanic and took over the Glove Factory with a partner(not known to me). I can't remember if he was still a boss when it closed. Don is not in the photos. Sadly Don died a few years ago but his wife Irene still lives on Stakeford estate.

Hi Katie my name is Karen eaglestone i worked at the glove factory 

@Karen eaglestone - I remember this posting that @katie had made back in 2013 so I checked back to see when Katie last visited the site. Katie hasn't revisited the site since 18th April 2013 = 2 days after she joined.

If you hover over the members 'name tag' the system shows some info - small drop down section but staying on the current page you are viewing -  and if you select/click on the member's name the system displays a bit more info by redirecting you to the member's info page.

I remember the glove factory. I met my future wife in the middle sixties when She worked there. She didn't really like working there doing machine work making gloves. When we were courting around 1967 we used to babysit for Audrey Howie and her husband. Cannot remember his name sadly. They were both kind to us. Of course time has gone on since and we have our 52nd anniversary on Monday. She left in 69 to join me down south when I was serving in forces. We used to meet up in sixties at the railway tavern when it was a disq. Great night out. I remember Dot Temple and my wife's friend Margaret Stewart. She was instrumental in us meeting. Those times long gone. Regards

@Jr6468 - spent many nights, late 1960's, in the Railway Tavern (Craigsies) before going on to the Domino.

In the Railway Tavern disq the Double Maxim looked like engine oil - you could get a pint of milk  - the landlady (can't remember her name:mellow: ) loved it when a fight broke out and I think the policeman that would sort it out was 'Big Jock' .

Some photos from @Reedy of two xmas parties at the Glove Factory and one of the management and I think the lady in the photo with the four gents is Dot (Dolly ) Temple.

Last photo, from Claire Gates:

That's Dorothy (Dot) Lumsden (with glasses) on the far right.

Naturally, I should have said on the LEFT. I haven't known my ass from my elbow for many years but not knowing right from left is unforgivable!

Does anyone know anything about the Glove factory before it switched premises to the old institute at Barrington.

Does anyone have a photo of it or as it was in it's previous life on the North side of the river Blyth when it was the Infectious Disease hospital next to the old staithes?

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
