'Boozy' reunion planned for Welsh weekly

The beer is set to flow in Welshpool next week as more than 50 current and former staff of the town’s weekly newspaper stage a reunion.

Journalists past and present from the NWN Media-owned Powys County Times & Express at Welshpool are planning the get-together next Friday, 28 August.

Former editor-in-chief Graham Breeze, former deputy editor Sally Williams and current staff photographer Phil Blagg are trying to track down ex-staff members for what they say will be a “boozy night out.”

Said Graham: “When Sally, Phil and I met up we thought it would be nice for former colleagues to meet at a social occasion, rather than a funeral and started to list the names we knew.

“We’ve so far got a list of 50 names but I’m sure there there will be some we missed out,” he added.

Anyone interested in attending the reunion at the Westwood Park Hotel in Welshpool should contact Graham at graham@breeze2.freeserve.co.uk, Sally on sally.williams@mediawales.co.uk or Phil on phil.blagg@nwn.co.uk.
