notice.jpg Colin Wystyrk killed in RTA
 I have just had a call from Colin's bother, Martyn, to advise that he was knocked down and killed in a car incident on Thursday evening. Following retirement Colin resided in Yorkshire and was walking home from the pub on Thursday evening along a country lane when he was fatally injured. Colin was 66.

The coroner is obviously involved and funeral arrangements will be communicated once we have more details.

If anybody would like to get in touch with Martyn for further information he can be contacted on 0161 431 9361 or mob: 07817 534920.

Martyn would appreciate if you could pass on the tragic news to anybody that may have known Colin. He especially mention Alan Whitehouse for whom I am trying to get in contact with.

Hi All,

I have decided to call it a day. From apprentice to climbing poles to nightshifts, account management, service management, Wholesale, Global, Retail….after 40 long years I have nowhere left to go! Having seen so many changes over the years it is now time to hand the baton over to you young ones (keep working hard I still have some BT shares!!).

I’m now going to spend some time travelling, voluntary work in Manchester Art Gallery (I know all about the Pre Raphaelites!) and pursuing my musical career (there is a feature on me in next month’s edition of “Acoustic” magazine

My last day of service is 30th September 2011 and I can now confirm that the “do” will be in:

Manchester on Thursday 20th October at The Moon Under Water on Deansgate from 5pm onwards.

The Moon Under Water is near Victoria Station, for details please see link below,

My old mate Howard Whitby is also leaving this week and he will be joining us on the 20th so if you could all spread the word please that would be great. There will sure to be a lot of old faces including a few guys who are already retired so should be a really good night…..looking forward to seeing you!!!

I have worked with everyone of you at some point in my career and it will be you folks that I will really miss.

Best of luck to you all!

Please feel free to pass this on to your colleagues.

Cheers, Ged Wilson
