News, Views, Gossip and Reconnections!
How to keep in touch and updated on all things Horizons.
However you are reading this, the point is that you are reading it. You may be using Facebook, The Horizons Website or the Magazine, this is just a reminder of the different ways that you are able to keep in touch and updated on all things Horizons - The association for former HSBC employees, HSBC the organisation, Griffins or other groups.
You may wish to curl up in a cosy corner for a read, so the magazine may suit, you may wish to carry out some research, perhaps to find your nearest group or event or discounts available, so the website may suit, or you may just want the latest gossip to be served up in a timely manner. Whatever you wish, each of these has different reasons to be the ‘best choice’ at the time. Perhaps have a look at some of these on your favourite ‘device’…………..

The Midland Bank Griffins (MBGs) & Horizons is a nostalgic and current social reconnection Facebook group. This platform is for colleagues who have worked for Midland Bank and HSBC. The Facebook group which has almost 10,000 members, promotes and supports the many social activities of Horizons in a real time environment. This has led to many new members joining Horizons and connecting with their local Horizons’ centres.
There have been thousands of friend re-connections spanning as far back as the 1950s and with over 8000 group photos, rekindled memories are a daily occurrence.
