1976 Robertsons Competition

In 1976, Robertsons of Springwells ran a competition for children. The winner of a brand new chopper bike was Aberdeen boy Niall David (11). Here he is in the Springwell ginger factory receiving his prize from Robertsons Accountant, Mr. R.A Farnfield.

Also pictured from left to right are Robertsons Marketing manager Mr. Douglas Stiven, Niall’s mother, Mrs Winifred Robertson and David Leslie, the floor manager of Star Cash and Carry.

Perhaps some of the former Robertson’s workers remember these staff members?
