Everybody’s business 1955
from an interview with Brian Mottram
Everybody’s uncle, father, mother
Everybody’s sister, auntie, brother
Everybody’s friend of a friend of a friend
Worked in carpets, thought it wouldn’t end
Chatting at the cricket, chatting in the pub
Chatting at the football and the fishing club
Chatting in the street, gossiping at home
Never any secrets in Kidderminster town!

Brian is sitting in virtually the same spot as he did when he worked for Woodward Grosvenor as Export Director from 1986 until he retired in 2003. The Woodward Grosvenor building now houses the Museum of Carpet and Brian works there as a volunteer.
