The Bibby Convention, held at Newcastle, must rank as one of the outstanding successes on the year’s agricultural calendar – both from the business and social aspects.
The morning was devoted to a sales conference in the Slieve Donard Hotel. Following a buffet lunch the afternoon saw directors, staff, employees and visitors take part in golf and bowling competitions.
Following cocktails with Mr B A Jones, livestock Managing Director of Bibby Agricultural Limited, the company were entertained to dinner, and the day’s proceedings ended with dancing.
Mr M A Robertson, managing director at the Knockmore Mill, expressed thanks to Mr C D Suffern, Mr R H Paul, golf captain, Mrs Pat Lawther, ladies’ captain, Mr James Munnis, bowls’ captain, and all others who had helped to organise such a successful day.
