Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Two More Farms Left Counting The Cost Of Blazes -

Fifty years af­ter leav­ing Ash­ford Girls Gram­mar School, for­mer pupils met up for a re­union lunch at The Sin­gle­ton En­vi­ron­ment Cen­tre in Ash­ford.

Twenty-one ex-pupils who started at the school in 1959 came from as far afield as Northum­ber­land, Cam­bridge and Ox­ford­shire to meet up at the cen­tre’s Foot­prints cafe on Thurs­day, Au­gust 14.

Or­gan­iser She­lagh Di­plock said: “We were joined by two for­mer teach­ers, Mrs Hawkes and Miss Buckley.

“We held a pre­vi­ous re­union when we were in our for­ties but now we are 66 we thought it was a good time to meet again while we are ‘in our prime’ and be­fore we start go­ing down­hill.”
