Since 2003, Paul Rowney organised a reunion every two years for former members of the Kettering Sport and Social Club, whose 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 these events. In 2014 Paul passed the organisation of the event to Dave Smith.
From 2003 this had 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 of the Kettering Police Social Club was selected for the 2015 Reunion and has been successfully used until 2017. Its imminent closure may result in a different venue for 2018
A date and venue has yet to be decided.
