Memories came flooding back when Court Moor School’s 'Class of 84' reunited for a special 30-year reunion.

Eighty-one people returned to their old school in Spring Woods, Fleet earlier this month.

“It really was a fantastic evening and all the feedback we’ve had has been amazing,” said reunion organiser Pete Cole. It was all very emotional with lots of hugs and back slapping.

“The only downside for me was that it was the hottest day of the year and I was hot and bothered the whole time.”

Among those attending was former pupil Cathie Hall, who took her son out of school for a week and flew all the way from New York with her husband Robert.

Others attending the reunion included Diane Burns, who travelled from Pontardawe in South Wales, Gary Hall, who came from Lisburn in Northern Ireland, Wendy Stewart from Manchester, Chris Moss from Devon and Cameron Clarke, from Thornbury in Bristol.

Mr Cole, a conference organiser who lives in Woking, put together a photo book with about 100 photos from the school days.

“It was great passing it around so that people could see the clothes and the haircuts of the time,” he added.

“My wife Mandy did a good job on the door, the Wyvern supplied the bar and the disco went down very well with all the music from the right era.”

A raffle made £55 for Farnham’s Phyllis Tuckwell, with prizes including a set of pedals donated by the local bike shop and a ukelele from Kingfisher Music.

“The raffle was a last-minute decision and worked well,” said Mr Cole. “The reunion has taken two years to organise and now it’s all been and gone.

“Everything I hoped it would be it was. It was hard work but definitely worth it.”
