Robertson’s Staff Night Out

1970 Robertsons of Springwell 1

What a fantastic photo this is, not just showing the interior of the former Hastie’s Farm but for showing a happy, night out amongst friends and colleagues!

This was a Robertson’s of Springwells staff night out, the ladies all enjoying some downtime at Hastie’s Farm in 1973.  Do you recognise anybody in the photo? Perhaps you worked with some of these women at Robertsons? Whilst there’s a few wine glasses on the table, I’m sure I can spot a ginger bottle there too!

With thanks to David Brown for sharing.
