Factory workers at Christmas bash

Pictured are workers at Kimberley’s Wolsey factory celebrating Christmas with a sing-song around the piano.

Machinest Mabel Green is sat at the piano, and fellow workers can be seen singing off hymn sheets behind her.

This picture, along with two below, were submitted by Pauline Bailey, whose aunt, Emma Chambers, worked at the factory all her life.

Mrs Bailey said her aunt began work at the factory straight from school aged 13, and worked there until she retired. She was invited to the company’s prestigious annual dinner in Leicester celebrating long service, every year, said Mrs Bailey.
