Memories of coke-fired stoves and outside toilets, which were cold and full of spiders, are set to be some of the main talking points at a reunion for former pupils at Great Barton Primary School.
It is taking place for those who attended during the 1960s and will be held on Saturday, June 9, in the Village Institute, from 11.30am to 3pm.
At the time the school was on a split site, one building in School Lane and the other, which is now converted into a private residence, in School Road. The head was Ron Ceurstemont and the other teachers were Margaret Higgins and Rose Mayhew.
One of the organisers of the event Val Mayhew said that there was a single coke-fueled stove to heat each room, toilets were outside, very cold and full of spiders
“We’ve decided to hold this event following the publication last year of ‘Bertuna’s Children’, a wonderful history of education in the village by ex-head Sue Spiller, and even if people can’t come along we would love to hear from anyone connected with the school at that time.”
