Bankwest Geraldton reunion


27 May 2011

Everybody loves a reunion…it’s time to reminisce and make comments along the lines of “Wow, you’ve hardly changed since 1977!”  Bankwest Geraldton is hosting a big reunion for past and present staff to celebrate 89 years of service to the local industry.

More than 240 good folk have worked for the local bank over the years, dating back to the days when Bankwest was known as the ‘Rural and Industries Bank.’
Gayle, who has worked for Bankwest Geraldton since 1988, along with Jenny (colleague from 1991-2005) managed to compile a list of over 250 names and had a great response from a wide range of ages; some having worked for Bankwest in the early 1970s! Gayle claims it was a tough task contacting every name on the list, especially as many women changed their surnames after marriage.

None-the-less about 100 staff, past and present will be attending the reunion on June 4th at the Geraldton Club. No doubt it will be a fun…and interesting, blast from the past!  Ex-employees are encouraged to contact Gayle at for more information.
