FORMER classmates from Australia, Thailand and America will return to Ipswich to attend a reunion of the Stoke High School class of 1989.

Preparations are well underway with more than 100 ex-pupils set to converge on the Corn Exchange on July 25 for the 20-year anniversary event.

The celebration is being organised by Kerry Laredo, n�e Mildenhall, who currently lives in Normandy, France, with her husband and three-year-old daughter, Sophie.

The 36-year-old said: “It should be a great night with people coming from as far away as Australia to be there.

“There were 180 people in our year and 100 came to the last reunion ten years ago so I am hoping for a similar number this time around.”

Mrs Laredo is planning to return to live in Ipswich later this year.
