My name is Neal Parry I was a CEGB apprentice, 1978 intake ! I am still in the industry and worked at Willington power station from 1978 till it closed in 1999, I then got a fitting job at National Grid and I'm still here at present.

There were 8 of us taken on and I can remember all of our names and also all the Drakelow apprentices as well !

My brother Ray Parry was 1981 intake at Drakelow !
