DID you leave the East Bergholt High School in 1982? Would you like to meet up with some long lost school friends?

If so, Gillian Thorpe (nee Goode) and Glenis Norington (nee Goodchild) would like to hear from you.

All 170 ex-pupils in the class of '82, are invited to a reunion drink that is being held at the Belstead Arms in Radcliffe Drive, Ipswich on May 18.

The evening is planned to be a general get together lasting from 7.30 to 11.30pm.

Gillian, one of the event organisers, said: "I must admit that since I left I haven't kept in contact with everyone so this is a good opportunity to catch up with people. When I left school, I left home at the same time so it was difficult to keep in touch."

"The response to the idea of a reunion has been pretty good. I am really looking forward to it and there are quite a few people that I am really looking forward to seeing."

This is the second reunion to be held for the year group, who met on their ten year anniversary of leaving school back in 1992 when it was held at East Bergholt High School.

So far around 60 people have said they are definitely going along.

The pair has managed to contact most people who left the school that year but there are still around 50 more people who they haven't been able to contact.

Anyone who knows the whereabouts of ex-pupils from 1982, or who would like some information about the evening, are asked to get in contact with Gillian on 01473 688811.
