VSW054 Evana Lloyd, Milk Marketing Board Creamery, Felinfach

Evana began working at the Creamery in 1971 (until 1979 when her son was born). She wanted to be a teacher but her mother found her a job in the factory’s laboratory. Yet she enjoyed testing the milk and the cleanliness of the factory. She also did administrative work. She describes shortening the overalls, getting permission to wear trousers, the dangerous acid, course to improve their skills, the games room, spot checks, forming a guard of honour at weddings and the fatherly attitude of the older workers. She missed the companionship greatly when she left.
