Memory Lane schooldays: Staff and children celebrate at Colkirk


By Chris Hornby


Colkirk Primary School pupils had a double reason to celebrate in June, 1986.

First they heard that their 61-strong school had been saved from threatened closure and then they won a £300 bumper bundle of books in a competition.

Soon after the news of the reprieve, a letter arrived to confirm the school had won a balloon competition organised by KORS (Keep Our Rural Schools).

The balloons, each with the name of a village school in Norfolk, were released at Norwich when KORS presented a petition at County Hall. The Colkirk balloon got as far as Gorleston.

Pictured right, KORS chairman Michael Pollard presents the books – given anonymously – to the Colkirk pupils.
