Three school chums who last met 66 years ago have got together again, thanks to an appeal through the Kent Messenger.
Bob Grant, John Snelgrove and Audrey Bigley (nee Meek) met up at The Bull Inn, Penenden Heath, after Mrs Bigley, who now lives in Canterbury, sent in a picture of her class at North Borough School in Peel Street, Maidstone.
It was taken in 1947, and Mrs Bigley appealed for information about her old classmates.
The photo was spotted by John Snelgrove and Bob Grant, both still in Maidstone.
On leaving North Borough, the trio all went on to East Borough Secondary School.
Now aged 81, they enjoyed swapping memories.
Mrs Bigley said: “We had a wonderful time recalling old names and places.
“It was surprising how many other links we found to each other, beside just from our school days.
“It was lovely to meet their wives, Rosemary and Christina, too. We all seem to have lived very successful lives, despite failing the 11-plus!”
The trio are now planning a more extensive reunion for their classmates to be held at The Bull in the autumn.
Anyone who remembers them from school is welcome to contact Mrs Bigley on email@example.com
