Take a look at our photographs which show everything from a Christmas party to factory reunions.

Over the years, Dewhirst must have employed huge numbers of skilled workers, predominantly women; were you one of them?

No doubt, over the years, different generations of the same family would have worked together, making clothes for stores throughout the country: did you?

So if these scenes - captured at both the Sunderland and Peterlee plants - bring back memories, then please get in touch with Chris Cordner and tell us more.
