Photo of our ‘Mayfield Girls of 1952 Get Together’ on 12th June this year. We all met at my apartment in Gosport Marina, Hampshire, and as you may imagine we never stopped talking from the time we met. It was great to catch up on everyone’s lives – you would be surprised what we have all managed to achieve since we left Mayfield. But what I would like everyone to know is that we all have very happy memories of our school and especially the quality of our teachers.

A very big thank you to everyone who attended the reunion. It was a great success with 12 representatives from the girls school and one from the boys school. Everyone enjoyed catching up after 46 years, chatting until 11.30pm. Pamela Allmand and Valerie Lean are sisters and were visiting from their homes in Canada. The reunion was prompted by their visit.

Do anyone remember Clifford Fox? Well, he married my best friend from school, and through Friends Reunited I have had contact with her. Some members from the boys school may remember Cliff, and might be interested that they have six children and 13 grand children. Peggy is 70 in October and she’s invited my husband Neil and I to her birthday lunch, so I will meet her very large family. I am very excited about it. We had lost touch for over 35 years.

Kathy Cuttriss, Harry Valentine and myself were classmates at South Park Juniors and we all ended up at Mayfield. Kathy and Harry spent the next four years walking to school together. When Kathy arranged to meet Harry, she picked a pub roughly halfway between their homes. The pub they visited, the Three Hammers, is in St. Albans – the town where I lived for 24 years after leaving Ilford in 1970. How’s that for coincidence?

Well, we did it. We met at 12.15pm at the Three Hammers. When we all scrambled out of our cars, with hugs and kisses all round, I reminded Harry that he had in fact met my husband when we were courting, but of course Harry didn’t remember that. We went in and ordered a round of drinks so that we could toast each other. We sat talking and catching up on all the gossip, 50 years worth. Where have those 50 years gone. It was so great to meet Harry and his lovely wife Jackie, and we all got on like a house on fire. It was so weird, all I kept thinking was that Harry’s eyes were the same as when I last saw him. That made them all laugh. Continue reading →
When twin sisters, Pat and Sheila Saddler, joined Mayfield Memories they were amazed to find their cousin, Dave Verlander who they had lost touch with, was already a member. In 2007 Pat, who lives in Canada, Sheila and Dave met up for the first time in 45 years. Cousins and ex-Mayfield pupils, reunited.
