Saw the bit about exhibition at Hertford we are moving to a new factory during the move I found the setting stick that Trevor Powell gave me still in the original box also the eye glass Bill Purkiss gave me when I left to go to my first job at Welwyn Garden City that was 47 years ago in November. Time goes by we have been married 47 years on 14 November. Got a few photos( photocopies) from Barnardos today only one was of me I will post them when they send originals

Dear Mr Blower,

We have been looking with great interest at Goldings website. My grandfather Alfred Edwin Welham worked as a Print Minder at Goldings sometime between 1922 and 1926 and lived at The Lodge. We have an old family photograph with the words 'The Lodge Goldings' written on the back but it does not appear the same Lodge as shown in your picture gallery. Do you know if there were more than one Lodge. In some of the family documents his residence is referred to as Hertford Lodge.

In 1991 we had a letter from Barnardos Research Officer telling us that Mr Ron Stackwood, also at some time in charge of the Print Shop, remembered Alfred Welham as his bible class teacher at Christchurch in Hertfordshire in the 30's. Barnardos had no more information on Alfred.

Would you be interested in a copy of our photograph of The Lodge Goldings?

I think I must have the year wrong when the dining hall was painted and all meals were taken in the rec. hut. I'll have to thumb through the Goldonians unless someone remembers the year.
