A Memory of Bromborough

I worked at the B.E.C. in 1959 to 1965 and have been trying to find information about it online. I was back on the Wirral and saw the original building in 2004. Always remember the awful smells when we were on our way into work - not the most glamorous of areas that's for sure. Mr. Roberts was the security man on the desk - I was friendly with his daughter, Suzanne. We always had our Christmas Dances at the Hulme Hall. There was a lady who worked in the canteen called 'Flower' - a short lady with white hair. The canteen ladies used to come around with the tea trolley with delicious doughnuts and pastries.
