I worked at Trencherfield Mill for over ten years. The ladies name was in fact Jane McCloughlin. She was head supervisor, and then was made manageress if memory serves. We had some great times, Christmas Parties, birthdays, and events like this. We used to have some wonderful times. Is there anyone out there who remembers the years 1977-87?
