REUNION: Seeking old school pals

editorial image

I am organising a school reunion for pupils who attended Preston High School between 1968 and 1973, but all pupils who attended the school are welcome.

The get-together will be held on Saturday, May 11, at Salt Cove Bar/Restaurant in the Park Hotel, Tynemouth.

It will run from 6pm to 11pm.

However, I’m still looking for old school friends.

I’ve named a few of them below so if you know any of the following people could you please let them know about the reunion.

They are: Stephen Conway, Helen Raffo, Maureen McDine, Julia Wilkinson, Hazel Davies, Paul Codling, Susan Rutherford, Fiona Wilkinson, Carol Currell, John Jewels and Irving Trench.

Teachers old and new are very welcome too.

It would be great to see you there.

I need to know if you will be attending so could you please respond to me at

Alternatively, if you are on Facebook you can get a post to me using the Technical School group to confirm your attendance.

If you don’t have an account, I’m sure someone will help you to create one or confirm your attendance on their own account. I look forward to seeing you there.
