A tribute


Mrs Drabble centre with two as yet unknown members of staff photo courtesy Mollie UttleyMany of us had someone in the family who worked for Fosters, we also remember the friendliness of these people when they served customers. The photo here is of Connie Drabble who worked at Fosters after the 2nd World War  until she retired, she was in charge of the girls packing up orders when Fosters had a fleet of vans and did deliveries.  Now we don't know the names of the two girls either side of Mrs. Drabble and would be grateful if any of you can identify them.
At the time Mrs. Drabble was in charge of the Van deliveries my sister Ann was one of the drivers, the van was a small mini-van.
Millicent Page of South Vale Drive Thrybergh, also worked at Fosters and for awhile drove one of the vans.
Other members of staff I remember were Dot Woolhouse, and one of the Grace Dodd.
Jonathan our intrepid cameraman on this site also worked at Fosters for awhile. If you worked at Fosters or knew someone that worked there and would like to have their names added here, then please send them along.

The Staff who served us well



There is no doubt that the staff of Fosters left us all with an image of what customer relationship is all about. If there is anyone missing off the list  and you would like to have their names added here, then please send them along.
