Conisbrough Visit for Bolton Girls

There was an afternoon out for fourth form girls of Bolton Modern School yesterday, when they toured a Conisbrough dairy and Conisbrough Parish Church. The 40 girls were accompanied by two teachers, Miss F Gross and Miss A Golicher

The visit was to Mr AE Maxfield’s “Ivanhoe Dairy,” where the ordinary schedule of milk pasteurisation had been held up to coincide with their visit

Reason for the visit was to link up what they had read and heard broadcast about milk with some practical knowledge

They were shown round by Mr. Maxfield, and saw the whole process of bottling from the entry of bottles to the dairy, their cleansing, the boiling, sterilising and cooling of the milk, and the stamping of the metal tops.

Afterwards Mr. Maxfield sketched in the background of pasteurisation. Before they left, the girls applauded Mr. Maxfield. He seemed to have enjoyed it as much as they and several of the visitors said they would not have minded working in a dairy.

They were afterwards shown round the Parish Church by the curate, the Reverend M.J. Cuttell.
