I know that field well from my days playing football for Maggie Murphy in the early seventies on a Sunday.

I am surprised Hotpoint used that field for their Sports Day, Brian, when they had their own field and club just further down the road.

The sports field for Woodlands School was used before the Hotpoint social club opened further along on Victoria Road.

Do you know which year Hotpoint opened up their social club in Victoria Drive?

Did your family used to live over the road to Huggins whose father also used to work in Hotpoint?

That looks very much like my uncle Billy Warlow Jones in the middle of the last photograph and cousins Ken (Rimmer) Hughes and Denise Wrench later to become Ken's wife, on the left.
I loved the Hotpoint sports days and Christmas parties, Happy days.

Hi Bri,
I don't know when the Social Club opened, but can only guess around 1962/3. My father Derek Pritchard was a member of the Hotpiont Cricket team, and he used to look after the cricket pitch. I can remember him driving an old grey tractor, pulling a rig with rotating blades to cut the grass. The tractor was stored in a shed at the back of the changing rooms.
My twin brother and I lived in Heulfryn on the corner at no. 17, over the road from Alan Hughes.

Hi Brian. I do remember you and your brother.

I don't know if you are aware but there is a gentleman living locally who used to be a manager at Hotpoint in the Junction.

He has researched the history of the Junction factory and often puts on a slide show presentation to local groups.

I am sure he would be very interested in meeting up with you, if you still live locally.

Please let me know if you are interested.

Roy Mills is the chap's name who does the history slide show - I worked with him in Design department, both at the Junction and later in Bodelwyddan.  Well researched presentation.

Hi Bri,

Glad to hear that someone is keeping the history of Hotpoint alive. I moved away over thirty years ago, and until last year was a regular visitor to my old home town.
