It isn’t just Grantham buildings that Terry Shelbourne has painted over the years.

Above is one of the many vehicles which benefited from his handiwork at the well-known Grantham packaging firm Barrett Packaging Limited, also known as Barpak.

It was located in Alma Park, and many former employees have fond memories of their days at the company.

Responding to the photo on our Facebook page, Michelle Sweeney said: “My first job from leaving school till it closed . . . good times.”

Mark Hoyes added: “Good old days! Great people to work with! Great pay and benefits!”
