Happy time had by children

5.2.1960 Torrington Dairies childrens party

Some of the 123 children – the majority of them belonging to employees – who spent a happy time at a party on Saturday organised by the sports and social committee of Torridge Vale Dairies, Torrington.

Employees without children were each allowed to invite a small guest and, parents included, about 185 enjoyed a wonderful tea, always a highlight on such occasions, prepared by the canteen staff.

The company were welcomed by Mr R M Boyer, a director of the firm, who also said Grace. A film show aided digestion before a programme of party games was enjoyed. The young guests went away happily with an orange, sweets and a balloon, a couple of buses provided by the organisers taking them back into town.
