Rinklies Lunch 2013

 

A very enjoyable lunch for former employees of NBR was held at the Casa Mia restaurant in Dumfries on June 8, 2013. A total of 14 former employees and spouses attended.

Unfortunately there were some last minute call off's  for various reasons, but a good time was enjoyed by all attendees.

Martin Hale as usual did an excellent job of making the arrangements—the venue was convenient, if a little noisy, and the food was good.

NBR          North British Rinklies

                                                          NBRinklies Pre-Christmas Lunch

Ladies and Gentlemen,

                  Please accept my apologies for the lack of any communications this year concerning the activities of NBRinklies. Due to health problems I experienced which I am now happy to say are resolved and in the past. And a second  apology for the sudden and unexpected for the cancellation of the booked Summer Lunch, due to circumstances outwit our control.                              I am happy to invite you all to the next event. We have booked the private room at the Bruntsfield Golf  Club, Edinburgh, for Saturday the 28th November 2009. We hope that as many of you as possible will be able to us join in this year
                   May I remind you that the room can accommodate 60 people, so it will be first come I'm afraid.  A further notice 
will be issued nearer the time.
                   We look forward to welcoming old friends and new faces, if possible
                             
Yours sincerely,
                          Martin Hale.

Martin Hale our hardworking secretary  has sent 6 photos taken on the occasion of the Summer 2006 
Rinklies lunch when the grand total of attendees was 9. Lowest ever recorded!
 Martin tells me that;  it has taken over a year to extract the images from my cell phone as the software for the Samsung phone is at odds with all the recognised systems here. What we did, eventually, was to transmit them to my daughters phone and then she sent them to my computer.
Thank you Martin

 Here we have the actual report of the First Rinklies lunch kindly   supplied by Sandy Kay  --thank you Sandy   
               
                                       North British Rubber Co Ltd Re-union Lunch
                                                         Friday 13July 2001

The inaugural lunch of past employees of the North British Rubber Co Ltd took place in the Bruntsfield 
Golfing Society clubhouse on the 13 July 2001. This lunch came about as the result of an idea 
floated at  a lunch attended by only three past employees, Dave Vallis, David Air and Sandy Kay in July 2000.  Dave Vallis then suggested that as there had been an albeit limited attendance that a second lunch should  be held in 2001 with more attendees. From this decision Dave began the task of locating as many of the  past employees as possible. This was no mean task as many of the people had moved on, not only in the  local area, but also to exotic location in the USA and in various parts of the country. The result was a lunch date being set and finally a total of 18 people attended what was an excellent event. The attendees were requested to bring to the lunch any memorabilia from the old company, which most were able to do, among which was the brass plaque that was originally mounted on the gates at Castle Mills.
     The names of those who attended were;
                      David Air                        David Ainslie                       Tom Bartlett
                      Jack Boyd                      John Campbelton                 Alec Forbes         
                     
Bill Farrell                      Jim Finlay                             Jim Glass 
                     
John Hume                      Bill Hare                              Alastair Johnston 
                     
Sandy Kay                      Jimmy Lowe                         Duncan McDonald           
                      Alastair McKenzie         Stewart Segrott                    Dave Vallis  

All the participants agreed that the event should be repeated next year. In the meantime it was also
 suggested that a visit to the Dumfries factory would be something of interest, also suggested that a 
visit to the Royalite facility at Newbridge could be put on the agenda. Dave Vallis undertook 
to co-ordinate these events and to advise those interested.
At this point Dave Vallis is to be congratulated
 for his persistence in making all the arrangements for what was a successful event.
 

 

                                         We have to thank Sandy Kay for supplying the photographs
