Nearly 50 ex pupils of the Sir John Leman School in Beccles met earlier this month for a reunion from the 1950s to 1970s.

Reunion organiser Maureen Larkin said: "It was time to turn back the years to those carefree school days, and to share happy and sometimes mischievious tales of those times.

"Many of those attending travelled long distances, including from the USA, France, Croydon and North Norfolk and many had not met since leaving the school 60 years ago."

The ex pupils met at the Fox & Hounds social club in Beccles, where there was memorabilia on show and a buffet was shared.

Mrs Larkin said: "It was a very enjoyable afternoon, a time for sharing memories, rekindling friendships and fondly remembering those who are no longer around."
