My post is to Mattash, I also started with the Council but it was back in 1953, Easter and the man in charge then was a Mr Robinson. It all started because I enjoyed Art at school (Barker Butts) and that was what I was good at, but when we were visited by the youth employment officer and I said I wanted to do something in painting, it was the council painting department, where he got me the job. I was sent on first day to Whoberley Hostels, painting outside, mainly drownpipes and service pipes. I soon learnt to be pretty quick on moving, because sometimes a window would open and all sorts of things came if you where not quick enough, well I don't need to elaborate. I stuck for a month, then got a job with K.B. Benfield on new houses in Sunnyside Close, off Four Pounds Avenue, and stayed with them for one year, before getting an apprenticeship with Plumbs Shopfitters
