FORMER staff at a hospital are to hold a reunion next month

A get-together of staff who used to work in the Catering Department at Shotley Bridge Hospital is to take place on Saturday, October 7.

Organisers are now trying to track down former colleagues who worked at the hospital from the 1970s up until last year when the kitchens and dining room were closed.

A spokesman for the organisers said: “We all have fond memories of working at Shotley Bridge and, as we get older, we have realised this time may be the last chance to get together and chat”.

The reunion will take place in the Steel Club in Consett on October 7 from 2pm until 5pm and will include a display of old photographs and refreshments.
