Dozens of former apprentices from the Willans Works in Rugby gathered for their annual reunion at Dunchurch Park Hotel on Monday.

A record total of 67 turned out for the occasion - including a man who had travelled over from Canada.

They had all served at the English Electric plant in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s.

Peter Winnicott, who began his apprenticeship in 1950, said: “It was a happy occasion and we were looked after very well by the hotel.” Mr Winnicott and Brian Godden has contacted dozens of former colleagues.
