Reunion after 50 years

After closing its doors in July 1961, Harley School, near Much Wenlock – now the village hall – is to welcome back its pupils to an afternoon of memories and nostalgia (as well as tea and cake). All ex-pupils are invited to come ‘back to school’ on Sunday 15 September from 2-5pm to reminisce and share experiences and achievements, with one 89-year-old ex-pupil intending to share her memories of fried bread and marmite sandwiches!

The Ironbridge Gorge Museum has kindly offered to loan items the children would have used at school at that time. They hope these objects will evoke memories of their school days, school friends and teachers of a bygone era.

Villager Jerry Bridgeland explains, “As we are all getting older and before it’s too late, we would like to capture the recollections of school life in our village.”
