I think this photo was taken in the early eighties obviusly a presentaion / Retirement.
My dad Jimmy Heyes is pictured to the left, just off centre of the photograph (wearing glasses.)
My dad used to think Gullicks couldn't survive
without him.We used to tease him by saying him..
'Gullick Dobson & Heyes.

The guy with the tash, well every one at GULLICKS called him Georgie Best but his name his Gorden Welch, he has his best suit on in the photo,because its the only one he wears he is never away from the place so he cant wear out else

Mark Calter is correct chap with tash is Georgie Best
(Gordon Welch) guess what he is still at Gullicks and still
has no suit.Most of the lads are from the chock shop.

Pretty sure my Dad, Ken Jameson, is on the very far right, behind the man with glasses. He did work in the chock shop, and he passed away in 2016.
