Travelling from across the UK and further afield, more than 200 former students from two Lynn high schools enjoyed a reunion on Saturday.

The event was organised by the Old Lennensians’ Association following the success of one held in 2006 that saw over 450 former King Edward VII School students attending.

This time, organisers hoped to bring together those who attended the school with former students of the West Norfolk and King’s Lynn High School for Girls.

Among those enjoying herself at the reunion was Caroline Sherrard, from Perth in West Australia.

Don Oliver, secretary for the Old Lennensians’ Association, said: “The announcement of the event brought enquiries from South Korea, Spain, Holland, France, Canada and Australia in addition to all parts of the UK.

“This resulted in 210 attending the reunion on Saturday, where they were able to enjoy a finger buffet and a glass of wine in an informal atmosphere. Anyone interested was able to take a trip down memory lane by being able to take a stroll around the school and its surroundings.”

He added: “Chairman John Marsters welcomed the ex-students, after which they were able to mingle and rekindle lost friendships and make new ones.

“Many of those had not been in contact for more than 50 years and had welcomed the opportunity to meet up again. It was a most enjoyable day.”
