Well what a marvellous, memorable day it turned out to be! I shall treasure it always. Nearly 80 of us present, a lovely atmosphere, lots of squeals of delight and amazement, and plenty of reminiscing!I don't think we could have beaten it for quality. So well done everyone!
My heartfelt thanks to you all for making the effort to come and support this special day.
Since arriving home in Suffolk I have had 12 e-mails and 5 phone calls from you, all praising the day and telling me how much you enjoyed it. It was very heartwarming and encouraging to read and hear your comments, so thank you all.
I was very sad, and I know you were too, that Jean was unable to be with us on the great day. She had put a lot of time and effort into promoting the reunion and was looking forward to it immensely. Then not to be able to come must have been heartbreaking for her. Thanks anyway, Jean, for tremendous efforts on our behalf. Perhaps you will be able to make the next one, whenever that is!
Special thanks to Maggie Smith (Mike's wife), Beryl Westmacott (David's wife) and to Glenys (my wife) for all the hard background work they put in for us on the day. Well done girls!
Keep sending in your photos, reminiscences and comments on the reunion to Jean. She is looking forward to hearing from you all.
Peter Westmacott (the boy from no.10)
P.S. This is not the "official history" of the reunion that Mike Smith has directed me to produce. That will come soon when I have had time to recover!
