Odeon Seniors - annual meet up!

"The group of retired Odeon colleagues who meet annually spent their reunion week-end last year at the Belfrey Hotel, Nottingham. The hotel is situated on the outskirts of the City with easy public transport access into the City centre so that members of the group were able to enjoy visiting the City and the surrounding places of interest as well as the company of their former colleagues.

 

As always the week-end was a very happy occasion and now the arrangements have been finalised for this year’s reunion which we will look forward to with eager anticipation   We will be meeting at The Stratford Hotel, Arden Street, Stratford On Avon over the week-end of the 13th to 15th October. The hotel is situated next to the station so is easily accessible by public transport if anyone attending does not wish to use his or her own transport.  The town’s many attractions are also within close walking distance of the hotel.

 

Again, the regular attendees would be pleased to welcome any other interested former Odeon colleagues who would be interested to attend.  There is no need to stay for all three nights and one or two night visits are just as welcome.

 

Any former colleagues wishing to join in should contact John Lee on jrplee@btinternet.com"
