The next ‘Class of ’64 Reunion’ will be held in Bournemouth on Friday 18th May from 7.00 pm onward. Please pass the word around. The venue is ‘The Goat & Tricycle’ pub. It has been recommended by Trevor Lewis as a great traditional pub. It has a huge selection of beers and really good pub food at very reasonable prices. Plenty of nearby hotels too. The address is: 27-29 West Hill Road, Bournemouth BH2 5PF. Many thanks to Trevor Lewis for suggesting this venue. Brian Mead and myself hope to see you all there in May. – Chris Parkhurst

The meeting was held in Norfolk at Danny’s caravan on Sunday, 20th May, in Happisburgh. The weather was perfect, we reminisced on school days passed and got glorious suntans. Danny’s wife, Shirley, did us proud with a lovely lunch. We are hoping to repeat the meeting again next year. Any Mayfield Old Boys would be more than welcome to join us.
On Friday 23rd June 2017 four Old Mayfield Boys met up at the Duke of York, The Pantiles, Tunbridge Wells. The convivial evening kicked off at 6pm when Chris met up with Brian, shortly afterwards to be joined by Tony. A little later we were joined by Roy and the time flew by. During the evening we raised our glasses to Glyn Summers and all the other staff members who have passed on. It was 10.45pm when Chris staggered out of the pub, leaving just Tony to polish off his final pint of London Pride. We enjoyed a great evening and all agreed that we would arrange another reunion again, possibly next year back in Bournemouth, where we met once previously in 2013.

All four brothers went to Mayfield
Friday 21st July 2006
The Pantiles, Royal Tunbridge Wells.
It was great to see Dave again. Brian and I didn’t know who would be coming but Dave drove down and found us right outside the venue. Dave still lives in Chadwell Heath and was able to pass on news about a few other old boys. He also told us that a 90 year old Mr Cutting was wheeled in to his hardware store a while back. Whether he wanted supplies for another science experiment wasn’t noted. Chris Parkhurst.
