New Factory May Have Day Nursery

First purpose built factory to be erected in Bideford by a firm already established here will be in production in the New Year.

It is to be built on an acre site off the Clovelly Road by H E Fletcher Ltd, baby wear manufacturers and makers of the well known
Dri-troo products. The firm has outgrown the premises it now occupies at Torridge Hill.

The principal of the firm, Mr Peter Fletcher, to whose far-sightedness, enterprise and resource it owes its success, says it is hoped to increase the labour force to at least 70 within two years and ultimately to more than 100. This must, of course, depend upon suitable women workers being available.
