A man who appealed for an old school friend to get in touch through the pages of the Advertiser has been successful in his search.

Keith Mitchell, 79, who lives in Buxton, wanted to trace Geoffrey Mew, who lives in Ilkeston, to invite him to a school reunion.

Mr Mew called the Advertiser and said he has been in touch with Mr Mitchell.

The friends, who went to Kents Banks Sceondary School in Buxton, will attend a reunion in July. The two men had not spoken since they left school.
