Former pupils of the two most historic schools in King’s Lynn and West Norfolk are getting together for a reunion with a difference this summer.

It will involve members of the Old Lennensians (OLs) from the King Edward VII Grammar School uniting with the West Norfolk High School.

Already previous students now living in different parts of the world have said they plan to return for the reunion.

Interest has been gathering steadily in the grand reunion taking place at King Edward VII School on June 7.

This informal gathering is open to all former pupils or staff of the Grammar School or the West Norfolk High School and their partners.

Currently the High School has no formal association to coordinate events for former pupils and it is hoped that this event might help to encourage the creation of a group. The Old Lennensians are also looking to the future and, in addition to sharing events with the High School, are hoping to encourage more members from recent years.

It is believed that current pupils from KES will attend the reunion and that ex-High School girls currently living in Canada and Australia plan to fly back to the UK

The reunion will cost £15 per person with a buffet lunch, including two drinks.

Many have already booked their place as well as their choice of food and drink. Anyone interested in being part of what promises to be a very memorable day, please contact Andrew Stephen: Menu details will be sent.

Cheques will not be cashed until final numbers are known, with a deadline of May 31.

Cheques, made payable to the Old Lennensians Assoication, should be sent to: Don Oliver, 2 White Hart Cottages, High Street, Wickham Market, Woodbridge, Suffolk IP13 0RA.

The event will begin at 10.30am and finish at 3.30pm.
