Employees Reunion - Jowett Car Club 2016

#1 Post by Grumpy Northener » Sun Oct 09, 2016 11:45 pm

A pretty unique event in the club scene I think - we hold an annual reunion of all former Jowett factory employees at the Bradford Industrial Museum every August - now with a factory that closed in 1954 event the even the apprentices are now well into their 70's & 80's - we bring circa 50 members cars to the event and provide lunch for the former employees - lots of stories from the factory days are recounted and it's a great day out for the club. Incidentally Bradford Industrial Museum holds the largest museum collection of Jowetts in the UK (12 in total I think)
