Monica’s been out and about again, this time to Warwickshire, to the County Records Office where she was once employed. Chairman Christine had organised a reunion lunch for former employees and our Lifestyle Manager Steve was determined to ensure that Monica was able to attend.
Steve and Monica set off on Sunday morning, Steve at the wheel, Monica in charge of navigation. The journey went well, no detours or U-turns required, and they arrived with time to spare. After the obligatory photos, Monica showed Steve around her old office, she even let him sit behind her desk. Monica enjoyed showing Steve the vast swathes of documentation held within the office, recounting the work involved in their care as they went.
Steve described lunch as “a bit posh” and extremely tasty, it was, he said wonderful to see Monica reconnecting with old work colleagues, chatting as if they’d seen each other just yesterday.
The rest of the afternoon went well, they held a raffle and Monica won herself a book and they spent a couple of hours just looking around and reminiscing about their time spent there. Monica loved working for Warwickshire Council and holds the people that she worked with in high regard. It was an emotional day and one that neither Monica nor Steve will forget in a hurry.
