My Mum, Joan Elcock (nee Vince) worked there too! I'm not sure about the year but I'll work it out asap. I'm sure I've got photos of her and some of the workforce amongst her things somewhere.

I started work here in 1936 at age 14 for twelve shillings a week painting red and blue squares on the double and treble rectangles. Thinking to better myself I went to work at Churchill Johnsons a builders merchants where the pay was better but hard earned. On being made redundant on outbreak of war I returned to the dartboard factory where I became an electro-plater with a handsome wage of £3 a week until I volunteered for the RAF in January 1941.
