My name is Stuart Parsons and I started my apprenticeship at Stourport Power Station in 1970, and attended Erdington Tech. on 12 months block release. Following this I was in the first intake to the Plant Training Centre at Drakelow and trained as a mechanical fitter. Left the C.E.G.B. in 1981 to work in the N.H.S. where I now work as an Operational Maintenance engineer at a large acute hospital in the midlands. The power station site is now a large modern housing estate.

Some names I can recall from those days John Pesic (Rugeley), Tony Morris (Ironbridge), Mike Gash (?), Paul Clarke (Coventry) and many more whose names escape me.
