The final EGOSA reunion was held at the old school on Saturday 20th June 2015 marking the 50th anniversary of the closure of Eye Grammar School in July 1965. A total of 190 members and guests enjoyed the chance to meet old friends from 11am through to 5 pm.
On arrival complementary coffee and biscuits was available, followed by a special service in Eye Church, which was preceeded by ringing of the church bells. Lunch at 1pm was later followed by presentations to the oldest member, furthest travelled member and ex-teacher Andrew Stratfold. Afternoon tea and cakes accompanied the release of massed tagged balloons. The event drew to an end by singing of the School Song and Auld Lang Syne. An extensive memorabilia display proved very popular once again. All catering was provided by the Queen's Head, Eye.
A novel photo booth was available all day for taking photos and videos of members and guests. These will be available for sale as prt of a DVD costing £10. The DVD will also contain many photos from previous reunions and those provided by members as part of the memorabilia displays. We have emailed all members,(for whom we have an address), with details of the DVD offer.
