It is almost reunion time again for the self-styled “old timers” who attended Blackpool Collegiate School for Girls.
Organiser Audrey Goldie (nee Vickers) says: “We are all around the 82 years old mark, so it is 71 years since we started at the school.”
Audrey, of Carsluith Avenue, Marton, has been sorting through her scrapbook and shares this picture of a school trip to Ambleside in 1948 - revealing that she is the dark haired girl middle row second right.
Whether Audrey or any of her classmates used the phonebox in the background to call home is not known, but on a similar trip today, the pupils would no doubt be busy uploading pictures to Facebook and texting frantically - providing of course they can get a signal in the first place in some of those notorious Lake District deadspots.
Audrey, who also sends a photograph of last year’s gathering, complete with maiden names, says: “Our reunion is to be held at Blackpool Cricket Club on Sunday, June 2, for a buffet lunch and a look at old photographs, school magazines and memorabilia and, of course, lots of talking!
“We would love to meet up with any others who would like to join us for an enjoyable afternoon,” adds Audrey, who can be contacted on (01253) 798729.
