The Smart & Brown company reunion that took place on October 24 last year at Langford Football Club raised £150.50 for local Sue Ryder St John’s Hospice. This total included extra donations from two of the members there.
Organised by Patrick Weldon, ex-employees of the machine tools company that was based in Biggleswade until 1982, have had several reunions to date. The factory, now demolished, was originally in London, then moved up to Yorkshire during the war, finally ending up in Biggleswade. It is remembered with great fondness by the many who worked there.
