With the girls. The retiring Ron Spain and from the left behind him is, Trina Ray, then Joan bond, Sandra Heard, Mandy Thornton and Eileen Jones. ------Photo from Kim Barham.
This is another picture from the Sheppey Walk, or was it Stroll? Paul Dixon, (who supplied the photo) is in the centre with the red boots, with Ron Honess to his left, the guy in the cap on the extreme left is, I have been told, Ian Timothy, but I think it's Alan Harker. The blue trousers belong to Caroline Dixon of Sales.
Another random picture of Sheppey from Paul Dixon (with the beer) and the organiser facing us, Ron Honess.
This photo, again of the Sheppy Stroll, Shows Judy Dixon on the left, then an neighbour of the Dixons, Martyn Begbey, Lindy Martin, Clive Martin and Paul Dixon. photo from Paul Dixon.
A lovely picture from Paul Dixon on the retirement of Sylvia Whitnell. On the left of the scene, I am sure the red pullover belonged to Ron Smith. Next to him is Dave Caleno, then Sylvia, Paul Dixon, Willie Dixon, Eileen Johnson, Lynn Glover, Eileen Joiner and Julie Barham.
Another retirement photo from Paul Dixon-- this time of Brian Holmes. Here he receives a cheque in recognision of his many years service in the bindery. His smiling wife looks on having received her bouquet and in the background is Nobby Howes.
Joyce Lawrence retires. In this photo, Paul Dixon is extolling her virtues, whilst Tony Styles looks on. It looks like Joyce has some interesting gifts on the table behind her. Her daughter Sandra also worked in the bindery for some time. Behind them I think, is the RB5, (and forget the lager on the shelf)------photo from Paul Dixon.
Another retirement photo from Paul Dixon. This shows that 'thoroughly good bloke' Alf Marsh on the right shaking hands with Paul. --Alf spent many years on the Love Lane folding machines. Tony Styles looks on to the left, then a pensive Frazer Hopper. --Will Gates and Len Bagnall are behind Alf with Brian Spree in the red shirt.---(Sitting down wearing the PINK top, could be Graham Link.)
A photo from Paul Dixon.-- I think the date on the calendar is 1987. Tony Styles is on the left of the scene, with Jim Frazer in the centre and Len Fairbrother on the right. The leaflets in the dexion racking, no doubt put up by John Motton, are Europa prospectuses. The labels read---- F.E.A £62, MENA 1987 no price and EYB1987 £130.
We don't know who the customer is in the centre, but in this photo from Paul Dixon, Paul on the left of the scene and Ray Green (sales), are evidently discussing the quality of the printing of the illustrations of the book. They would have been produced on the machine behind them which is the SP 50.
The next three pictures, again from Paul Dixon show the presentation to Kit Goodhew on 55 years of unbroken service. In the background here from the left are, Ernie Edwards, Jim Frazer, a lady from the bindery I can't name, then Wally West and Rene Bailey.
The cake was made out as a work ticket for London Diary and the date reads 21/10/87--(note the size in inches). Also shown is Kits' presentation bouquet.

At Love Lane in this photo from Paul Dixon, Ray Jenks from Dun and Bradstreet a major customer, surveys a sheet from the Printa X. He is accompanied by Peter Simmons the Sales Director. Compared to the old SP50 and NP56, this new machine was in a different league.
This must be Ted Fletchers retirement. --Photo from paul Dixon. Names will be added soon. It is good to get pics like this as new faces are added to the site.
In 1997 Clive Martin then Sherrif of the City of London, cycled with his daughter from John O Groats to Landsend to raise money for the then Lord Mayor of the City of London's charity.
Another photo from Paul Dixon-- Celebrating Rene Baileys retirement. With Rene and her husband is Kit Goodhew and Paul Dixon, who is admiring Rene's Pendant.
The World Pie Throwing Championships. In this picture from Paul Dixon, Staples are the far team and Paul is just about to 'launch one over', whilst Alan Southworth loads from the table. (Other photos turned up later and are on page 17.)

An admiring fan welcomes Clive Martin at Lands End.
In this photo from Paul Dixon it shows storm damage to the roof above the bike shed on the yard at Love Lane. On the far right is 'that nice Mabels' conservatory. Barry Cox thinks the bike could be his. It was 8th October 1987.
Further damage in Oct. 1987 from the storm, great pieces of plate glass down from the roof, falling on to the Editwriter.
More storm damage in these pictures from Paul Dixon.
