Hi Graham,
Not quite sure if you were there when I was.
I remember your brother Steve who at the time was teamed up with Billy Peters on Katy with Stan Ardern so had you already left then?
I first went to Becks in 1969 then left and went back in 1970/71 then left again just before Mr Teddy packed it in.
Last time I saw Steve was when they were building the new Gala Bingo in Burnley he was driving a rigid for Bennets picking up some cabins.
Loved my time at Becks and wish I could put back time.
keep well.
Terry Walker
