of BT Radio Station's closure marked at reunion
staff of the BT Radio Station in Highbridge held a reunion on
Friday night (April 30th),
ten years to the day since the station closed down.
120 guests attended the special function at
the Battleborough Grange Hotel, with many people travelling
from distant parts of the UK to reminisce and meet colleagues
for the first time in many years.
A selection of photographs of the station, now the site of the
Mulholland Park housing estate in Highbridge, were on display
throughout the evening, and many staff brought memorabilia of
their own to share with colleagues.
Event organiser and ex-radio officer Larry Bennett told Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"It was a highly successful evening, which ran perfectly
to plan. It was brilliant to see so many friends and colleagues
again, and to share stories about the station. The station was
a unique place to work, and a significant part of all of our lives."
