Local BT Pensioner Groups and Re-Unions

Why not set up a local BT Pensioner Group. Volunteers  to act as a local coordinator  would be required . The Groups and their activities would be run independently from this Website but communications for setting up could be through this page.Each local group could be based on the major towns and cities of the UK where there was once a Telephone/General Managers Office (TMO/GMO)

Local groups large and small may already exist and if so they could be detailed here. 

Volunteers

Volunteers please send your contact details to me for posting on this page mailto:w.rees614@btinternet.com

Local Groups

1. LEXPO  London West End

We are a group of some 150 plus BT engineers (planning, customer project management, PBX, commissioning, fitting, sub apps) who worked out of Warwick House Soho in the West End District of London.  Additionally we have links with Sales, External Planning, Paddington Engineers and Museum/Tower TE. Some of us planners have been great friends and we’ve kept in touch since we started working together in 1967.

Lexpo FC started in 1969 in the old Centre Area Telephone Football League, since then we had a Bar, Sports & Social Club in Warwick House with many functions, trips and even holidays together.

When our football team started in 1970 we could not register with the FA using Warwick FC as it already existed. So having our garage at the rear in Lexington St we called ourselves Lexpo the PO bit was from Post Office Telephones as we were back then.  (the Lobs is Lexpo Old Boys) www.lexpolobs.com
