APPRECIATING PREVIOUS SERVICE
I joined the bank 40 years ago today on an induction course in Birmingham before starting work at Ashby de la Zouch branch 40-08-31 the following week.
My career only lasted 15 years but I learnt a lot and some of it remains useful - I still find myself diarising things quarterly, and I never go overdrawn! Old habits die hard.
I worked in Ashby, Leicester, Birmingham, and Leeds. All the branches and offices I worked at have closed - apart from Ashby, of which I have some very happy memories. Last time I popped in there, I think there were four staff - when I started I signed on as number 20 in the book!
This group has been great for reconnecting with people I hadn't seen in decades so 'thank you' to the admins for all the work that goes into it.
