Since 2003, Paul Rowney has organised a reunion every two years for former members of the Kettering Sport and Social Club, the clubhouse in Dryland St was known as PENGO's. A large number of retired engineers and a few still employed by the company from the Kettering, Corby and Market Harborough have supported the event. In 2014 he passed the organisation of the event to Dave Smith.
In previous years this has taken place at The Thornhill Arms in Rushton on the last Thursday in October. The 2011 event was marred by a lack of bar staff, with limited parking and no street lighting in the village, a decision was made to change the location for 2013. The 2013 and 2014 reunions took place at Kettering Hospital Social Club but this lacked parking, decent beer and the room was pretty dismal. A new venue was selected for 2015.
This will take place on Thursday 26th October 2017 from 7:30ish at Kettering Police Social Club. [Note: A proposed change of date to avoid School half-term, did not proceed.] The club is situated at the top of Market Street and access is via Church Walk (note one-way system around the Horsemarket). Postcode NN15 7QP. There is a car park at the rear of the club, or London Road public car park is close by. (Free parking in the evenings) The Club offers decent beer, including real ale, and a buffet will be provided.
