Ford apprentices reunite 47 years on at former college

The men first met when they began their apprenticeships with the Ford Motor Company between 1970-74.  As part of their apprenticeships, they studied at the Rush Green campus of Barking & Dagenham College (@BarkingCollege). Since then they have remained firm friends but some have not seen each other for many years – over 47 years for some!  They decided it would be nice if they could all meet up again and that it would be even better if they were able to visit their old college and take a trip down memory lane!
