|Little has been written about the dairy or the
people that worked there, but thanks to the efforts of the late
George Cartwright, we have the photographs and most of the
details in this article. George worked at the dairy for many
years as vehicle maintenance foreman and it became an important
part of his life. He collected photographs and cuttings from the
dairy company’s newsletter “Midcount Mail” with the intention of
writing up his recollections of the dairy, but it was not to be.
George was a member of the dairy’s social club committee and
he and his wife never missed a social club evening. He greatly
enjoyed his garden and model railway and played a good game of
snooker and table tennis. In 1949 he took up flying and obtained
a pilot’s ‘A’ certificate.
