Staff from the former Skegness telephone exchange met for a Christmas lunch at the Welcome last Thursday.

Among those in attendance was June Walker, who travelled from Peterborough to meet her former colleagues.

It will be 30 years in February since the closure of the exchange, but the staff still meet every week. The meal was organised by Jean Jacks.
