Janet started working at Moray the Bakers as she was asked to help out and stayed on for 22 years! She started work at 6 a.m. to meet the bread and then went home for breakfast. At 10 a.m. she went back and just got on with the work of the day. Her day finished at 6 p.m. She remembers one day in January 1968 when the Gales were really bad.
“Coming home from school on very snowy days and my mother had a big plate of Tattie Soup waiting for me and my brothers. We were very hungry and it was lovely and filling and warmed me up.”
She enjoyed her work earning £2.50 a week with a day off on Wednesday. She was given a week off in winter and two weeks off in the summer.
