Ilkeston Grammar School reunion

FORMER pupils who had not met for more than 40 years held a reunion this week.

The former students who attended Ilkeston Grammar School from 1962 to 1969 met up in the Seven Oaks in Stanton-by-Dale.Organiser Kate Barraclough said that dozens of ex-pupils spent hours reminiscing over photographs from their school days and enjoying sixties music.

She said: “Catching up on each others’ news was the order of the night.”

She said they hope to do it again in five years.

“Some of them may even take advantage of their free bus pass!” she said.

Anyone who missed the reunion and who would like to go to the next one should call Kate on 01625 583897 or alternatively email Sue on suebeales1@ntlworld.com.
