Subject: [CR] another blow for the UK framebuilding scene!

Hello fellow listers,

Sadly I have to inform the group, that today I have been informed I am to be made redundant!!

Ironically it seems the day my 'months notice' may start is exactly 39 years to the day I got a job with Bob Jackson....on my 16th birthday........since then I have been continually employed as a framebuilder, first with Bob Jackson, then 23 years with Woodrup....and finally these past 10 years or so with Thorn.

I was only thinking a week or so ago that I may well have been the UKs longest serving full time employed framebuilder?.....or certainly one of the longest serving........though I stand to be corrected?

I have not given up hope of once again 'doing what I do best'.........its the only job I ever wanted to do, and I aint giving up just yet!
