FORMER colleagues raised a glass and toasted a special reunion.

Ex-employees of Wheatley Hall Road-based McCormick, formerly Case, all came together to reunite - for the second time.

Overwhelmed by the response of an original reunion held over 18 months ago where around 200 people turned up, organisers staged another event.

This time around scores of people from across the borough and the region turned up at the evening event at Armthorpe’s Coronation Club.

Organisers put on entertainment and a buffet at the club in Tranmoor Lane, Armthorpe.

After celebrating 60 years of tractor production, McCormick closed its doors in 2007 as parent company the ARGO Group moved to its Italian manufacturing plants.
