Jam Factory

26th December 2021

Valerie Cane:

As a teenager in the 60s I worked there briefly. No idea how I got there from Brightling, a very poor bus service.
sometimes the smell of jam pervaded the whole town. Much nicer than the smell of the Tannery though (can't find out a lot about this).

I remember the kerfuffle when M and S were due to visit and inspect. Much cleaning, reminder of the rules for workers.Yes, nice, high-end jam. I don't recall getting a discount - maybe not there long enough? (Holiday job)
