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.

Jammy

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.

So sorry, I got the names mixed up as I mentioned it was Audrey Howie we babysat for, actually it was Audrey Davison. It was the photographs that confused me. Sorry again.

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!

      Police are investigating a Bedlington care home where inspectors say some elderly residents weren't kept safe.
      Medicines had allegedly gone missing at Baedling Manor Care Home, while the local authority was called in to monitor the home's safeguarding arrangements.
      The home's 49 residents "did not always experience safe care and treatment", inspectors from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) said.
      The CQC said it had launched an inspection after being contacted with concerns about "safeguarding people, staffing, recruitment, medicines, infection control, consent, complaints and the governance of the service".
      Downgrading the home, run by Alcyone Healthcare, from 'Good' to 'Requires Improvement', the report said: "People were not always safeguarded from the risk of harm. Incidents were not reported or recorded properly, and action was not always taken to address matters.
      "The home was placed into organisational safeguarding by the local authority and there were police investigations in progress."
