notice.jpg Wraggy's Outta Here..
 After 44+ years joined Aug 1979 in the GPO BT, mostly keeping the Kilostream platform and network in good order, I have hit the button and will be leaving on Friday 15th March.
I have had many great times and laughs and come into contact with so many wonderful people, characters, across the whole of the UK some of which have become great friends. Arthur 'Okkie Nokkie' Mercer is the 1st REAL character that sticks in my mind - Central Ex as a Youth

It has been a fantastic Boy's Club but I am looking forward to finding new hobbies to enjoy.

I'm being stripped of my 81's and pass card in Dial House on 15th March, and once that has been done, I will be in The Moon Under the Water from 13:00 if anyone would care to join me, hair-dye-less, for some lubrication and a gab.

To summarize:
Friday 15th March 13:00 onwards, Beer, Chat, The Moon Under The Water, Deansgate, Manchester

question.jpg Does anyone remember Paul Davison?
 Paul got in touch asking if anyone remembers him.

He used to work in Preston and Blackburn in the 1960's and would like to get in touch with his work colleagues from that era before he moved to Southampton.

I've asked Paul for a photo, I'll add it if he gets back with one.

We have an email address and a phone number if anyone wants to get in touch with Paul, please get in touch via our Contact page.

cross.jpg RIP Cliff Dodd - updated
 Recently we received the very sad news that Cliff Dodd passed away peacefully at a nursing home after battling illness for some time. Cliff was aged 71.
Cliff started at BT as an apprentice in the early 1970.s. He worked at Turret, then Rutherford House and left BT to pursue another career in the 1980’s.
Some years ago Cliff by chance, discovered a large group of his old colleagues met on the First Thursday of every month at the Shambles. He suddenly appeared one day and absolutely loved the Banter and Camaraderie of the group and greatly relished his monthly trips on the First Thursday.’s travelling from his home in Chapel en le Frith.

Funeral update No2: change of venue

Due to family circumstances the funeral will be privately held.
For those who wish to celebrate Cliff's life the will be a wake. Casual dress for attendees.
Due to the numbers wanting to attend the original venue is no longer big enough. The date and time is unchanged.

Friday 16 Feb from 1:30 pm
Pointing Dog Gastropub
Grove Lane
Cheadle Hulme

A group traveling to the wake will meet at Piccadilly station on the platform at 12:00pm to take the train To Cheadle.
