My name is Gordon (Jim) Deighton. I emigrated in 1974 and now live in Australia, close to Surfer's Paradise in Queensland. I have many fond memories of Goole, not the town so much but the people. I had many years working on Drax Power Station and Eggborough during their construction. I worked in the concrete gangs. There maybe someone out there who remembers me. If so I I would be only too glad to communicate with them. I also worked at Garden King Frozen Foods from 1970-74 before emigrating.
