Lexpo Old Boys

 Welcome to the Lexpo (Lobs) Newsletter for  APRIL 2020.

Keeping members and friends in touch for 50 years 



I planned my 80th birthday party only to see it cancelled by recent events.  In true Lexpo tradition we arranged a take away for two, and were lucky to grab the last lemon drizzle from a local shop. Best wishes to John and all his Lexpo friends and his 4th floor fan club.    See you all at the Star and Garter next Christmas.   Ron and Rose H

We all wish you a great 80th Ron all our love and wishes your Lexpo partners, golf and football mates and 103 Oxford St. friends.  See you at Christmas and Love to Rose xxxx

Happy birthday Ron .My 80 th soon. .

Happy days Bob Marshall 

Good to hear you are both keeping well. I hope too that you're really enjoying life in your new home!

We are trying to keep busy and not fight too much!

Thanks for the info on 'old boy' Ron, I'll drop him an email.

Take care & stay well,

Lobs (Lexpo) is a group of Customer Planners, Project Managers and Engineers who worked out of Warwick House Gt. Pulteney St Soho London in the West End District (Centre Area) in the 60s, 70s and 80s.  After over 50 years we still keep in touch, meet up for social reunions and arrange sporting events.  All our friends and colleagues from the West End District and other Old Boy groups (for we have contacts with many other BT Pensioner Groups ) and past Lexpo football members are welcome to join us free of charge. Our aim is to promote fellowship with past colleags and friends and to keep in touch supporting each other. Lexpo has an old boys network  throughout the World - New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, France, Scotland, Barbados and the USA.  

Dear Lexpo Old Boys,
By our definition we are in the "at risk" category with relation to Covid - 19. Please all be wary and follow the guidelines on how to stay safe. We are a small group of old mates and so please lets not let this nasty little virus make our group any smaller.

Kind Regards
Dick Norman

Norman Shadbolt

Does anyone remember Norman Shadbolt? He worked on Sales in Oxford Street and Shaftesbury Avenue (and I believe in Clifford Street prior to that). He also worked in the bar. I had a letter from his sister-in-law advising me that he is now in a home for dementia patients in St Leonard’s. So sad. Pat (Wheeler as was)

Hello John 

like most of Lexpo FC I knew Norman who used to run the Sales football team who played at Regents Park every Saturday morning.  I played for Norman on a couple of occasions when he was short of a player, he must have known about my lack of skill.    Dave Daniels and Tony Malloy also played for his Sales team.    A chirpy personality with a friendly greeting when we met on and off the football field.   Sad news but pleasant memories.   Thanks Norman for the Saturdays that we all shared.

Pete Langley
Just heard Peter Langley ..Pete Langley is in hospital in Italy awaiting a heart operation, an original ..10 shillings shirts Lexpo man brought Brian Roman's into the team . I know all our thoughts and good wishes will be with him
Will keep you posted jim

Where's Clifford Street now I see only Lexpo in the cross country



Golf news:-  When it stops raining 

Well organised good venue nice welcome in the pro shop
Tough old day slogging around in the mud  but all worth while for the company 
See you on the 13th
Well done guys, sorry I could’t make it.
The back’s easing a bit now, but still got a sore bum where I fell back on the wheel wrench!

Happy new year

So with our Golden anniversary behind us
Let's roar on to our diamond....some of us roaring less than others no doubt

Really good  Xmas drink ..assuming all got home safe and sound

Mitcham is in good shape ..but no buggies at the moment 
But unless the weather deteriorates I've no doubt we will be fine on the 20th
But I think Monday would be short notice??

I'll go with the flow

Dinner for our 50th was a great success and the good food & company was at its best. Well done Lexpo gentlemen.
