A membership card to the 'Standish '57' Club. Both my mum and dad, Richard and Joan Holland worked for Heinz, as did other members of my family.

Hya Susan,it,s quite a few years now,since they demolished it,the football field is also full of houses,at a rough guess i would say about 6/8 yrs,could be longer,someone will know more than me .

This is Standish Heinz we,re talking about here, the Standish site is now an industial estate with quite a number of the original buildings still standing. The things that have gone at the Kitt Green site are the playing fields, bowling greens and the Heinz 57 club there are houses built on those pieces land.
