Workers from Marshalls in Southowram reunited for a trip down memory lane.

The reunion took place at the Railway Hotel in Halifax and was the group’s Christmas meetup.

Ex-managers, drivers and forklift drivers meet every six months to keep in touch with each other and reminisce about the past.

There were 35 people that attended with an average of 25 years service, some people having worked there for 50 years.

Chris Wilmot, one of the organisers of the meetup, said: “People go from working with each other every day to retiring and not seeing each other for six months at a time.

“It’s simply nice to reminisce about old working stories.”

The group had a collection for Overgate Hospice and raised £100 for the charity.
