I worked here on the repair and maintenance team, I would arrive and collect my job sheets for the days work, I maybe pointing, rebuilding damaged walls, paving, concreting, bricking up fire places, putting in airbricks, the work was varied.
I leaned all about brickwork and maintainance work even doing a bit of plastering and assisting other trades like plumbers with the drains l gained a higher National Certificate in building studies.
The culture was busy and male dominated.
The hardest part of the job was the heavy lifting.
The most enjoyable part was working in the community who were interested in meeting a woman bricklayer and working inside and outside if peoples homes.
