Long Sutton's Peele Community College student reunion
Former pupils of Peele Community College held a reunion on March 24.
Students from the intake years 1961 to 1963 were welcomed to the event held at the Royal British Legion Hall in Long Sutton. Susan Nicholls (nee Reeve) decided to organise the event for this year because many of those invited were turning 70.
Susan, helped spread the word about the celebration by asking the Free Press and Guardian to publish an article on it in January. A fantastic total of around 35 people attended the event and it proved to be a great success.
Susan, who grew up in Long Sutton, commented on how lovely the evening was and said: "It was nice to talk to people." Alongside the nibbles, the group spent the event chatting to one another.
After opening in 1958, the Peele had a leaving age of only 15. This meant that some of those attending the celebration hadn't seen each other for 55 years.
Everyone was very grateful for the work that Susan and her sister Carol had put into organising the reunion. Another similar event is being planned for later on in the year.
