Former Flushing School pupils catch up at reunion: PICTURES
4:00pm Saturday 12th July 2014 in News
Former pupils from Flushing School had a top class evening as they gathered from across the country for a reunion at the Seven Stars pub.
Former students from as far back as the 1950s reminisced over topics including school swimming lessons held in the sea, school dinners, teachers including 1960s favourite Mr Trethowan, and school sports days on the bowling green, where they are still held today.
Julie Eddy, one of the organisers, said: “We all chatted about then and now, what we are all doing now. We talked about people who had died or moved away and those who couldn’t be with us for other reasons.
“Everyone loved it and had a great evening. Ex-pupils from a wide range of ages attended.
“It was more well attended than we had anticipated. Laughter and chatting went on all evening until we were thrown out at closing time. A successful evening.”
Julie thanked fellow organiser Rozanne Trudgon, who travelled from the Midlands to attend the event, as well as Seven Stars landlady Sue Popperwell, who is another former Flushing pupil.
