Former Warwick District Council staff enjoy leisurely reunion

Leamington Editorial 30th Mar, 2019   0

FORMER Warwick District Council colleagues gathered for a special reunion recently.

More than 40 ex staff who had been part of the council’s leisure and amenities division during the 1980s and 90s enjoyed an afternoon of nostalgia and stories of very different times with the local authority.

The gathering at the Falstaff Hotel, included former staff from the leisure centres and swimming pools, crematorium, parks, Royal Spa Centre, art gallery and museum, Visitor Information Centre and even the physiotherapy department once based in the Royal Pump Rooms.

Current cultural services head Rose Winship, herself a long-standing member of staff, who along with former colleague Stephanie Cooke, organised the event, said: “It was wonderful to get so many friends and colleagues together under one roof, many of us hadn’t seen each other in over 25 years. Thanks to the power of social media we very much hope to keep in touch and meet more regularly.”
