I’m enjoying this feature and have learned a lot these last few weeks from you all on subjects I was “stuck on”. All your answers are being noted for future and fill in the gaps in stories I’ve prepared. Not a quiz, genuinely need your help. Here are this weeks quick questions. Thanks in advance.
1. Where was Blantyre’s EXECUTEX CLOTHING FACTORY during the 1970’s? Can you tell me anything about it?
2. During the 1970’s, where was Blantyre’s MEALS ON WHEELS based? Who ran this?
3. The Blantyre branch of THE RED CROSS disbanded in 1977, but reformed a year later in 1978. Where were they based?
4. In 1979, ROBERTSONS OF SPRINGWELL started a programme of renovation including bottling plant equipment designed to make things faster and announced at the time to protect jobs. However, as we’re aware, the company closed some time later. What year did Robertsons close their doors on that brand name?
