Ex-convent girls hunt former schoolmates
TWO former Paddock House Convent Grammar School pupils are hoping to tick everyone off the register at a reunion next month.
Ann Lingard and Josephine Garrigan are appealing for help to track down students who joined the Oswaldtwistle school in September 1970.
The reunion will be held between 7pm and 11pm on Saturday, October 20, at Retro Food and Drink in Accrington.
Ann, whose previous surname was Redmayne, said they are ‘desperate to track them down’.
She said: “Josephine has used Facebook to find some friends she first met as an 11-year-old schoolgirl.
“The school and convent was on Frederick Street, Oswaldtwistle, but was demolished in the 1990s to make way for houses.
“Although many old girls have made contact, there are still a few elusive names [to find].”
If you started at Paddock House in 1970 as an ‘A’ class member under the form tutor Sister Mary Phillip or if you were an “Alpha” girl with form tutor Sister Mary Gertrude please contact Josephine on 07811 701310 or Ann Lingard on 0774 605 2769.
