Dates have now been set for the three Area lunches which take place in December. They are as follow:
Take a bow, all BOSPEN (Glasgow & District) members!
The stage is set – throughout the month of October we will be going to three theatre events. There has been a wonderful response to the flyers, and one hundred and sixty-nine people will be attending theses social outings!
On behalf of your committee, a huge thanks for your continued support.
Another in our short series of bits ‘n’ pieces that circulated the Branch and Department network, back in the day. This is one I’m sure many will readily identify with, regardless whether or not they themselves held the position of Assistant Manager.
I received the following message yesterday, 18th March 2018:
‘We are organising a reunion for colleagues and ex colleagues who worked in Bank if Scotland Glasgow Chief Office. It is on Thursday 29th March in the old banking hall,any time from 5:30pm. If you worked in GCO and would like to attend please get in touch.’
Anyone wishing more information, or indeed register their interest in attending, should contact Lynn Gallagher direct, via her Facebook page.
Since the new site / blog went ‘live’ almost two weeks ago, there has been a great deal of interest, as attested by almost two and a half thousand ‘hits’ in that short period of time.
It’s lovely to read of other folks’ experiences in The Bank. And indeed to be reminded about what now look to be ‘oh-so-quaint’ practices of our time with Bank of Scotland.
All the submissions so far have been great illustrations of this, and Ruth Eason’s post last night has prompted some feedback / comments / discussion on the Facebook page.
Sure, we all had a good moan from time to time. In the main, we are all Scottish, so to an extent it was to be expected – it would have been difficult to re-write our DNA as part of the application process.
But overall, they were good times, and again as Ruth said, ‘Oh, but we did have fun!!!’
I remain certain there are hundreds of other great, funny, positive tales out there.
Your buddies and ex-colleagues would love to hear from you.
