wreath.jpg Farewell Dave Robinson
 Bill Bailey contacted us with this sad news.

I've had a call from Dave Robinson's son to tell me of Dave's passing on the 3rd March following a massive heart attack at his caravan in Whitley Bay.

Dave was a T2A on Subs Maintenance back in the 70's on Longford, Trafford and Chorlton areas and transferred over onto Sales for several years before leaving the firm and going self employed.

I think Dave's funeral will be over Whitley Bay area but I have no details.

Funeral details to follow.

Pete says:

I have received this email from Terry Idle, Pete was a senior manager in BT Managed Network Services with staff based in Manchester.

We are very sorry to inform you all that Pete Carruthers died suddenly of a suspected heart attack on Saturday 4th March at his home in the Lakes. Pete's wife Lynne, has asked us to inform all of Pete's many friends and colleagues of this sad news.

notice.jpg Canal Boat Trip
 Hello everyone.

For few years John Essex has organised a canal boat trip. This year we were planning to do the Llangollen Canal on 23rd September for a week.

Time has meant that over the years our numbers has dwindled. I missed one when I was caring for my wife Sandra.

This year the numbers have reduced to make it impracticable. Before we call it off we wondered if anyone wants to join us. If so please let me know at

It's good company, an enjoyable way to see the country.
