|When the Village Hall opened at 10.00 am, 'old' school friends were already waiting outside and the hall was soon very busy indeed||
Over 200 old Froyle School pupils and teachers from all over the country came for the reunion and the launch of 'A Village School' - the story of Froyle School.
|Author of 'A Village School', Annette Booth, shows Rosemary Fittock (centre) her picture in the book. Rosemary had returned to Froyle for the first time in 60 years.||Rosemary Fittock in 1940 (left) with her gas mask. She was evacuated to Froyle in the Second World War. She stands with the Vivian children on their way to school.|
|Lunch was prepared by June Trim, who was, rather appropriately, the last cook at Froyle School!||Despite being the hottest day of the year with temperatures in the high 90s, people stayed and stayed, catching up with old friends.|
|As well as the book launch, there was a small exhibition of pictures and pupils work throughout the 118 years of the school's life.||Everyone was so busy catching up that it wasn't until late afternoon that we realised there had been no group photograph taken! So those who had stayed until the end found themselves rounded up to be preserved for posterity!|
