The gathering was hosted by former Princess Royal girl Angela Hudson-Bath who runs the pub with her partner Simon and attracted old friends and newcomers alike.

The former pupils and their guests enjoyed an afternoon of catching up, gossip and laughter.

Well known local lady Mary Hanson, who attended the school between 1947 and 1951, turned up with daughter Angela and niece Pat Field who went to the school between 1966 and 1970.

Others had travelled some distance, from north east England and Hornsea on the east coast, while Kath Price came from North Wales.

“Many thanks to everyone who promoted the event and helping in its success.”
