The GSE Team was featured in The Ilford Reporter on October 15 in an article headlined “Town hall welcomes visitors from across the pond.”
And in case you can’t read the scanned copy, here’s the text:
“TOWN hall chiefs got a taste of working life in America during a visit by a group of professionals. Redbridge Mayor, Cl l r Thomas Chan and Aldborough Cllr Loraine Sladden welcomed the overseas visitors from Boston, Massachusetts, to Redbridge Town Hall, High Road, Ilford, last week.
The trip was organised by Rotary in London as part of a group study exchange. The guests, including a journalist, scientist, graphic designer and transportation planner, met with their professional counterparts to learn about problems and solutions to their trades in this country.
The visit was organised by Tony Betts, who is group study exchange co-ordinator
in east London and Cllr Sladden.
Mr Betts said: “People can gain a great deal by finding out different things that are done in different countries, and taking these ideas back to their employer.”
Rotary in London has been organising exchanges for the past 30 years and next year it will be the turn of four London adults to visit the United States”
