Reunion awaits former colleague

A REUNION of friends who worked together at a solicitor’s firm in the 70s is on hold while they try to track down one last former colleague.

Previous employees of Saltergate firm Montagu J Martin are trying to track down their one-time office junior, Sue Gallimore, in time for a reunion next year, celebrating 40 years since the practice was set up.

Elaine Bradbury, the firm’s former secretary, said: “We were all very fond of young Sue who was so quick about her deliveries that Monty nicknamed her Greyhound. We would all have put money on her in any race.”

Sue is the last of the group to be traced, and they are eager to get an invitation to her before they set a date for their celebrations.

Montagu J Martin was set up on Saltergate in 1972 and was there until it was bought by John L Tym in the mid 70s.
