Happy memories of factory site
11:12am Monday 11th March 2013 in Letters
A few weeks ago, some correspondence was printed regarding the state of Nestlé's front buildings and gardens.
I daily pass the factory, and some action has been taken.
The grass and bushes have been trimmed, and the clocks are working, with a fresh coat of paint.
Going back in time, however, I remember the old Rowntree complex, with its own fire station, the white building known as the cardboard box, the shunting yard, the library, and the waste card for cheap chocolate. Happy days.
Now the old factory on Haxby Road looks sad and empty, the price of being run from Switzerland.
It’s now just a cog in the Nestlé machine.
