I was at Mayfield from 1957 to 1962 and wonder if anyone remembers me? I did the Commercial Course with Mrs Hayhoe. I remember the whole school being out on the playing field when Miss Tappenden left. I think we gave her a garden setting and the gardener gave her some rose bushes. I have happy memories of my time at Mayfield.
My sister, Doris Garrett, received the MBE this year for services to music and charity. She has a play-a-thon every year. Doris has been teaching piano since she was 16, and is now 84. She has devoted her life to music and is a Fellow of the Royal College of Music. Doris was born in 1930 and attended Mayfield from 1941 to 1946. She has lived in Folkestone for a number of years and still continues to teach. She also trains many of her pupils to teach, so her legacy will continue. Doris has been invited to the Garden Party at Buckingham Palace in 2015.
