FRIENDSHIPS first established between 1950 and 1962 have been rekindled at a school reunion celebration.

A total of 36 ‘old girls’, who attended Stapleford’s Arthur Mee Secondary Modern School, teamed up at St Michael’s Church in Bramcote to share special memories of a school which flourished under the firm but fair leadership of headteachers Miss McCarthy and Miss Shelley.

Visitors said that old photographs, memorabilia and a reunion dinner, prepared and served up by Jonathan Marston, set the seal on a great occasion.

“Education in the 1940s, ‘50s, and ‘60s was very different from today,” said event organiser Hillary Brian.

“Most of those present agreed that we were privileged to be taught at such a great school.”
