I worked for rathbones but i was in the instore bakery at st hellens , this was before supermarkets had their own. i remember working when the bread strike was on in 76 , we ended up just selling raw dough to housewives who didnt want to wait for it to be baked .i also worked at rathbones at newtown .. loads of memories of those years but thats for another time .
