Rushden Echo, 19th September 1924, transcribed by Kay Collins
A Party of about 120 excursionists from Messrs. Walker and Gunn’s works, and including 23 from Messrs. H. R. Patenall’s factory, visited the British Empire Exhibition at Wembley on Saturday last. Mr. A. Abbott, of Rushden, supplied the charabancs, and the party left Higham at about 6.30, reaching Wembley in good time, where lunch was served by the kindness of Messrs. Walker and Gunn. They then split up into parties and visited the various palaces, etc. The return journey was begun at ten o’clock, and the trippers arrived at their destination about two o’clock on Sunday morning.
