Lymm Old Students


REUNION 1961 -1968

It was only a few days after registering with the Friends Reunited website that I recieved my first e-mail reply from Judy Hampson, nee Sparrow, now living on the outskirts of New York. Thirty four years had passed since we left school and we hadn't seen each other for a least thirty. We quickly picked up where we had left off and began writing regularly. Judy was also in touch with several others from our year at Lymm - people she had corresponded with by e-mail, so she decided to come over to England in February this year so we could all meet up.. We arranged to meet at The London Bridge in Stockton Heath for a quiet!! drink and chat.

I invited one or two old friends as well as my husband,Ted. Merv. Edwards (former History and Classics Master) and his wife had been neighbours of Judy's family, so they came along.

On 22nd February Viv. nee Lloyd, Linda nee Rose and myself set off, a little nervously for what proved to be a truly memorable evening. Judy had't changed a bit (except that she is now a blonde!) and people had travelled from all over the country to be there. The ice was soon broken and the years just seemed to melt away as we caught up on all the news -and no one seemed a day older.

Altogether about twenty people came: Robert Higham, Peter Darby, Janet nee Hawley,Robert Hill, Linda nee Watts, Roger Kemp, Roger Carter, Martin Holden, Johnny Barton, Stephen Wilson and many more.
The evening was over all too soon but we hope to meet up again in a couple of years. If anyone who remembers us would like to come along, please let us know.

Julie Howard nee Me Bride
