Plessey Sports Day, Beeston - late 1960s

Ericsson Valve Lab 1

Ericsson Telephone Sports Day was a popular annual event, held on the company sports ground off Trent Vale Road, and was continued by Plessey after it took over at Beeston in 1961.

This photograph is taken at one of these days, held towards the end of the 1960s. It shows Bill Wren (holding plant), with his daughter Audrey (with pushchair), and Ethel Wren (centre)
