Ex-WA Trustees staff meet up again

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

FOR­MER WA Trustees em­ploy­ees gath­ered last month at their old work­place, which is now the Trustee Bar and Bistro.

The 16 for­mer col­leagues gath­ered in what was once the fil­ing and cor­re­spon­dence room.

For­mer chief ex­ec­u­tive Lind­say Richard­son said most peo­ple had started their ca­reers in that room.

“Hav­ing lunch in that room was a real high­light of the day,” Mr Richard­son, who started as an of­fice boy in 1950 and fin­ished as chief ex­ec­u­tive in 1990, said.

Pa­tri­cia Fo­ord (nee McNa­mara) worked at the WA Trustees from 1954-66.

She said many of them were still in con­tact and met up ev­ery year but it was the first time at their for­mer work­place.
