Memory Lane Schooldays: Hunstanton children in ‘Save our School’ campaign
Sad children from Hunstanton First School joined parents, school staff and the town mayor Mr Brian Devlin in February, 1989, to fight for the future of their school.
They are pictured at St Margaret’s House, Lynn, before a meeting of the Western Area Advisory Education Sub-Committee, when members would be discussing the school’s future.
Playgroup children, painted with clowns’ faces, carried balloons and protest signs.
The placard protest had a positive result as the sub-committee members decided to defer the matter for further investigation.
The action committee was campaigning for a new school to be built, preferably at a site in Sandringham Road.
