Former pupils travelled from across the globe for a reunion at Keysoe School at the weekend.

About 60 people arrived for the get-together on Saturday, October 11, many locally and others from across the UK and even Florida!

Verena Pentlow, one of the organisers, said: “Many people had not seen each other for 50 years.

“A teacher who taught at the school in the late 1950s came and enjoyed talking to her old pupils. Some of the guests are in both the old and new pictures. Everyone had attended the school and enjoyed meeting up and swapping old tales and addresses for future contact.”

The pictures show pupils from past and present.

The old picture was taken around 1955 and shows a school group when the school was called Keysoe School.

The other two are photos taken recently - one is of the present Kymbrook schoolchildren and their teacher taken in the same spot as the one from 1955. The other is the group taken at the reunion on Saturday.
