The Tameside Museum has quite a good collection of Gollies in their Robertson's show case.

My Mum used to work at Robbies in the 70's, she used to peel the gooseberries and she'd often take the gollies for a stroll along the canal bank at dinner times.

Well with todays scores Chelsea 1-0 over Liverpool means that United only need one point to secure 2nd Place.. Will they get it?
Some days they are world beaters and then they put a lousy display like against Brighton.. Mind you all the clubs play some dreary games Watched City make over 30 passes to and fro in the backfield. Talk about boring. That's kind of like training sessions..

My Mom used to work at Robertson Jam Works way, way back (before WW2) and so when I was a very little girl I had a few lapel "gollywog" badges.  I loved them.   With my habit of "keeping everything" I get my hands, why, oh why didn't I save one for now?   Sorry Brian.   ;D ;D

  By Golly, I was in a store yesterday and on the Import shelf was a bottle of Robertson's jam.  Are they still in business? and I recall when I was Young many years ago They used to give out lapel badges when you sent in so many labels! which also got me to thinking if anyone has one of the badges or can be they obtained ?.

Talking about Ashton / Work on new building recommenced
« Last post by Vanessa on May 04, 2018, 06:39 PM »
Building work has recommenced on the new town centre building. Scottish building company, Robertsons, has taken over the project and the new finishing date is November, that is barring any major issues with previous work. Priority is being given to the college building, so it can open for the post Christmas term, Wilkinsons, so it can be open for Christmas and the job centre which should have moved in this month. Here is a short video I took today of the external work being carried out on the college building.
