13th REUNION

On Saturday 2nd April 2016 the 13th Reunion was held at the Knighton & Victoria Bowls Club in Church Lane Knighton. Joanne provided the excellent catering as usual. 34 were due to attend but 3 were unable to make it on the night. The ex messengers starting dates ranged from 1945 up to 1977 with several that changed to B.T Leicestershire Police and the Leicetershire Fire & Rescue Service, as usual many tales of what happened, near misses and which Booking Out Officer was to be feared were shared.

Some photos are now in the Photo Gallery
