It was very successful with over 40 people turning up, some for the first time having read your article (May 11).

This included the lovely 89-year-old Alan Thomas who turned up to see us all and join us for a coffee.

He had interesting tales to tell and had the girls spellbound!

He was there when the school foundation stone was laid and he sang in a choir at the opening ceremony when the then Princess Royal

opened and renamed the school in 1938.

He was a proper gentleman and it was a great day.
