FORMER Claydon High students got together to catch up, two decades after leaving school.

The class of 1987 met at the Bramford Angel to share memories over a few drinks.

The reunion was attended by nearly 50 of the old classmates and according to one of the organisers, David Jackson, not a lot had changed.

Mr Jackson, 37, from Bramford, said: “Some of us have got a bit older and greyer but everyone is still recognisable. I'm still in contact with a few people from the area who I knew were coming.

“We had people from as far away as Manchester, Somerset and Bristol, who I had contacted over the internet. One guy is now a pilot and another is a cameraman.”

James and Lisa Studd, who helped put the reunion together, were childhood sweethearts and have been together since high school.

Everyone had a great evening and according to Mr Jackson, even a former bully had mellowed in the years since high school.

He said: “He has calmed down a bit now. Everyone drank lots and had a good time. We put on some food and some songs from the time like Adam and the Ants. I would have been happy with about 20 people but a lot more turned up.”
