I   am   Suzanne   Taylor   and   i   am   just   with   my   91   year   old   mother   who   would   like   to   share   some memories   of   Ditchburn,      Her   name   is   Mary   Mead.   She   worked   for   Ditchburn   from   about   1955   to 1967.   First   as   a   clerk   in   the   general   office,   then   later   in   sales.   Mr   Norman   Lever   was   the   general manager,   and   Mr   Mike   Town   was   the   Sales   Manager.   She   worked   for   both   of   these   gentlemen,   Her friend   Hilary   Rhodes   worked   for   Mr   Bill   Andrews   the   works   manager,   and   another   friend   Val   Whittle (nee Preston) worked in the (vinyl) records department.

I   was   an   apprentice   at   Ditchburn’s   in   1968   and   worked   alongside   Arthur   Philips,   Peter   O'Dea,   Roy Kerry   and   an   old   guy   called   Bob   who   was   somewhat   deaf.   He   also   had   the   habit   of   falling   asleep   at his   workbench   with   a   live   amplifier   in   front   of   it   which   often   resulted   in   a   sudden   awakening.   Peter O'Dea   and   myself   were   of   a   similar   age   and   renowned   amongst   the   workforce   as   the   factory pranksters. Happy days!

My father worked for Ditchburn’s he would have started there early-to-mid 1970s, and worked there well into the 1980s. His name is Dave (David) Braebaum.

Thank you for the article on Ditchburn’s of Dock Rd Lytham. I had a friend who worked there for a time, he took me to his work place, one Saturday I think it was, and showed me what he was working on. This involved a continuous loop of recording tape on a special tape player. The tape had some sort of dry lubricant on one side so it play continuously from one spool feeding out from the centre of the spool and returning to the outside. My friend was called Roy Potter, he spent most of his working life at what is now called BAe but I know he enjoyed his time at Ditchburn’s working on these tapes. Do you remember him at all? Roy did a lot of work voluntarily for the cycle clubs and helped plan many of the cycle routes around the Fylde, received an honour for this work (MBE I think). He died about 5 or 6 years ago. Best wishes,  David Bennett
