 To all old rangeriders of Dial House it my sad duty to inform you of the death of Ken Smith who died peacefully in his sleep after a long battle with cancer. Ken was a stalwart of the Portland golf soceity as well as being the sheriff of Deansgate and Tandem. I attended his funural at Duckenfield Crem and passed on condolances from all his BT friends and colleagues to his wife and family.

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

notice.jpg Dave 'captain' Bleakey and Bill Wade
 Dave Bleakey is leaving our world class company at last.
He spent many years in Dial House amongst other places. He was so popular with management, he was shipped about from pillar to post countless times.
For those who encountered him over his time in BT, you will no doubt agree he always left a lasting impression.
Anyway, Sawyer Arms, Deansgate Friday,7th October from lunchtime onwards is the place to be.

Same day, same time and just up the road in the Moon Under Water will be another much travelled BT Stalwart....BILL WADE. Bill was so dedicated to the company, he made the ultimate sacrifice of taking any job offered as long as it was a ROTA post, including working as many Sundays and Bank Holiday as possible. What a man !

Please take the opportunity of supporting these two gentlemen on their big day and at least join them in the partaking of a free drink.

I'm told that both events will be well attended with the usual array of BT/Ex BT personnel including Engineers, Management, Splitters etc.
