Members of the 1948 intake shared fond memories of yesteryear when they met last Thursday at The Gardener’s Arms in Wilbury Hills Road, the same venue as last year.

The grammar school became Fearnhill School in the 1970s.

“It was a good reunion,” said organiser Tony Rutherford.

“The best thing that came out of it was a strong feeling of gratitude to our teachers.

“If so, thanks for everything we have achieved in life. We owe it all to your parents or grandparents – and an occasional bit of work by us!”

Tony added that anyone who started at LGS in 1948 is welcome to come to the third annual reunion planned for next year. For details email tonyrutherford@f2s.com.
