Ron Winder was my father. He worked at Sucklings for all of his working life . I don’t think he ever missed a day. He was as steady as a rock. He could set his hands to just about anything including cars, caravans, boats, buildings, furniture. He made all our clothes and of course our shoes. He was one of a kind, I miss him.
