A reminder to all you former Plessey’s employees, that a reunion party is due to take place in South Shields next week.

Lynda (Tyrie) Lamb, Fran (Kane) Manson and Ann (Morgan) Blacklock asked me to let people know that the event is due to be held at Brigham’s next Thursday, starting at 7pm.

And in order to stir even more memories among ex-staff and their families, they have sent in another selection of pictures taken over the years.

It’s sure to be a good night, with lots of people expected to turn-up, hopefully with more photos.

If you go, please drop me a line and let me know what memories the get-together generated.
