Time changes us all and it is sometimes difficult to remember names. We have all been in this situation, asking a friend if they can name a face and then been relieved that it was who ever we thought it was. At the reunion this happened many times and always with a happy out come.

An evening enjoyed by all; the chance to enjoy a drink, chatter with old friends and remember the happy days working at the Co-op.

Enjoying the chance to meet old friends was Sheila Cocks; our question is which department did she work in? Derek Miller tells us: ”I recall Sheila working in the Co-op hardware Department, which is now the Employment Office. Her manager was a man called Cyril Bacon. She later went on to pursue a career in retail at Uptons in Redcar and M & S in Middlesbrough.”

Many thanks to Derek for that update.

The gathered former Co-op workers needed to move round the room to try and meet their former colleagues. The occasion saw a vast turn out of former staff, all keen to exchange stories and meet again.
