I worked there one summer remember clocking in and out! Hard repetitive work bottling and canning. As a kid I would spend lots of time playing near the factory great place for roller skating and riding bike up and down the ramps. Had its own unique chemical/pharmaceutical smell. Mum worked at Storey Evans and Dad worked in packing just before he died. I remember Donald Dodson (Football team) he was I think a local Aireborough councillor 1950s/60s ? Bring back Aireborough Council!
