From the Maitland Mercury report:
Dozens of Maitland people who have links to BHP are expected to attend the final big reunion of employees in Newcastle this Saturday – marking 100 years since the company opened there.
Billed as the “last hurrah” BHP Reunion, it will be held at Newcastle District Tennis Club, Broadmeadow, at 12.30pm on Saturday.
This month also marks 16 years since the closure of BHP’s The Front End in Newcastle, where so many people from Maitland had been employed.
