Emlyn Hughes the football legend comes to town - 14 October 1994

Here is Emlyn Hughes the legendary Liverpool and England footballer cutting the celebratory cake at Brighouse Job Centre on the occasion it was awarded the prestigious 'Investor in People' on October 14, 1994. In this photograph from the left is Miss Carol Sykes, the Brighouse Job Centre Manager, Emlyn Hughes, Sir Donald Thompson, the Member of Parliament for the Brighouse area and another representative of the Brighouse Job Centre. Some readers may recall seeing Mr Hughes and his friend and footballing colleague Ian St John in the Brighouse town centre on a number of occasions. I bumped into them quite by chance when they had their sports equipment and clothing warehouse in Wood Street behind the Robin Hood pub. There office was in the old office building which joined onto the Robin Hood. All these buildings were demolished to make way for the new Lydl Supermarket which opened in December 2018.
