The Peter Gleaves Memorial Quiz

The Chesterfield /Sheffield Branch are proud to announce that the inaugural Peter Gleaves Memorial Quiz will be held at The Double Tree Hotel Sheffield on 12th October ’17 kindly sponsored by Omega FM Ltd.

Named in memory of our long standing Branch Secretary Peter Gleaves MIBF
Peter was originally from Manchester & worked for Beyer Peacock & Magnesium Electron before becoming Works Manager at KSR.

In the Autumn of 1969 Peter became a lecturer in the Foundry Department of Chesterfield College Of Technology on the new 48 week Foundry & Pattern-shop Technicians Course – many former students today will remember Peter’s dry wit & everlasting tolerance of idiots from his role at Chesterfield College.

A long-time supporter of The Institute Of British Foundrymen - Peter became Chesterfield Section Branch Secretary in 1975 & was instrumental in the formation of the Chesterfield & Sheffield Branch in 1995 – he served resolutely as Branch Secretary for more than 25 years until his sad passing in July 2000.

The Branch are very proud & honored to remember Peter in this way & seek the support of other Branches - Former Students & Lecturers – Suppliers - Local Foundries & Friends for a friendly social evening.

Teams of 2 to 4 are invited to register for the usual format of foundry & general knowledge questions followed by Pie Chips & Peas & perhaps a few beers

To register or for further information - please contact ICME Branch Secretary Trevor Stevenson (trevorstevenson@btinternet.com)
