April saw Spicer Hallfield make some members of staff redundant. Now, one month on, some former employees are dipping their toes into the big photographic pond.
According to reports, former factory manager Martin Abraham has set up MTA, a company which like Spicer Hallfield creates photography albums. He's also employed eight of his old colleagues from the old firm.
Others have started a cleaning business and one former employee hopes to turn his photography business into something more profitable.
