Gifts for Conisbrough Man
In recognition of his long service as an official and workmen at Cadeby colliery, Mr Fred Ibbotson, Conisbrough, was last night presented with a cheque from the staff and management.
66-year-old Mr Ibbotson, who has worked at Cadeby Colonies for over 50 years, retired some weeks ago. For 30 years he was an official – 18 years as an overman and 12 years as check weighman.
The presentation was made informally last night by a fellow official, Mr Stephen Davies, of Athelstane Road, Conisbrough, who organise the collection for Mr Ibbotson.
