building frontage This is the nostalgia site for all staff who ever worked for Plessey at Addlestone, Weybridge, Surrey, UK.

Our last reunion was on Friday 13th April in the Addlestone Community Centre.

It was attended by 125 former employees, some travelling from as far afield as France and Germany. 
It was judged by all to have been a great success. 
The modest entry charge not only covered costs but made a profit which will be donated to the Princess Alice Hospice.

Reunions have been held about every two years and it is anticipated that the next will be in April 2020. 

It is amazing that more than 25 years after the company was taken over in a hostile bid, and over 15 years since the site was closed, former employees meet with such enthusiasm to reminisce and to catch up with what their friends and colleagues have been doing since.

If you are not on our mail list and wish to be kept informed of future events then email us.


Please pass the information about this web site and our reunions on to anyone else who might be interested, and invite them to be notified of future events.

The last message to those who have asked to be notified was an obituary notice sent November 2018. If you thought we had contact details for you but did not get the message then this might be because you have changed your email address.  Please send me a current address so that I can keep in touch.
