When Mr Robert Raine of 1 South Bank Cottages, Coundon, retires on Saturday from the position of plumber for Messrs Dorman, Long and Company's collieries, farms and cottages, he will break an association of over 60 years. Mr Raine has held the position himself since shortly after the Great War and he took over from his father, Mr J Raine, who when he retired, had held the position for nearly 50 years.

Mr Raine, who is now 68 years of age, has also had an almost life long association with the Coundon Parish Church. He was for many years sidesman and church councillor, while one of his sons was organist for a number of years and other members of his family were all in the church choir.  [clipping provided by Don Raine]
