Mexborough and Swinton Times July 27, 1888
The proprietors of the Conisbrough Brick and Tile Works, Mr G Walker, J.P. and Mr Crawshaw, do not do things by halves, judging from the handsome manner in which they treated their workmen on Monday week.
In addition to paying their workmen their full wages, each man was given an excursion ticket for Scarborough, and also entertaining princely style to a sumptuous dinner and tea at the Grand Hotel, no expense been considered to thoroughly entertain all took advantage of their employers generosity.
Such kind treatment from master to workmen is not often heard of..
I had almost forgotten to state that 57 employees journey to Scarborough, and right heartedly enjoyed the proceedings.
Both Mr Walker and Mr Crawshaw accompanied the excursionists in their trip, and presided both at dinner and tea, taking care that the enjoyment of their men should be of as complete a character as possible.
