Maureen (Knights) Lloyd

I am delighted to be one of those old "Stowmarket-ites" being added to Terry's web site.  What a splendid job he is doing.  Doesn't it make you feel good when you have read about, and looked at some of the old photos appearing. Terry has asked me for a few words about myself.  Well, some people might say I am boring, but I have never moved far away from my birth place, which was 77 Bridge Street, Stowmarket.  I went to Combs Ford Primary School, and still meet and have contact with loads of friends from that school. From there I went to Stowmarket Secondary Modern - again - I still keep in touch with many many friends from here too. I worked for ICI Paints for 38 years in the Personnel Department, so I had dealing with lots and lots of people from the town and surrounding districts.  When I first joined the Company, there were over 1000 employees, when I left, there were round about 300.  Terry's father Dick, was one of many who I was able to "look after" during my career. I married Barry Lloyd in May 1967 - as you can see we celebrate our Ruby Wedding anniversary next year.  I have a sister and three brothers all living locally.
