In August this year we celebrate our 60th anniversary and are marking this milestone with a celebratory publication which recalls our development over the years.
To this end, we are seeking input from individuals and businesses who can add flavour to our story from their viewpoint as a stakeholder; be it customer, haulier, supplier, business partner and most especially retired staff members.
What we would love are memories, stories, anecdotes, photos, clippings and/or events which shaped our history and we are particularly focusing in on employees in order to gather memories about the early years or staff from that time which adds detail and colour to our story.
We have engaged James McCanny, a local storyteller to host a series of informal workshops, where valued former and long-standing employees can get together and reminisce over tea and buns so that these impressions may be captured forever. Running for 6 weeks on Tuesdays from 7-9pm it will take place in a suitable venue depending on numbers, however on Tuesday, May 3rd the first session will include a tour of Balcas so that you can see the changes that have taken place.
If you are interested in attending and providing your invaluable input, please let Roisin McManus know by Tuesday 26th April so we can make suitable arrangements. You can telephone 02866 411122 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Anyone is welcome to contribute, whether a neighbour or a supplier, and we would very much appreciate you taking the time to add to our celebrations by whichever means you prefer. If you have a story to tell and would prefer to do it directly, please get in touch.
