Nostalgia Trip - trying to find Annette Macefield.....

Andre from Kingseat

Hi, I worked with someone called Annette Macefield some quarter-century ago at Wellcome's Otahuhu manufacturing site. Due to company takeovers we all went our separate ways. Wanted to catch-up again but also hoping to keep it a surprise so am hoping that someone may know how to contact her. Possibly she may have headed to 'Oz but no big deal, it's only a phone call, but who knows?, does anyone?
