Former Neale-Wade School pupils met up for the first time in 28 years for a reunion to mark the year they all turn 60.

The class started the Neale-Wade in 1969 - the year that Cambridgeshire went ‘comprehensive’ and the Neale-Wade was formed from the merger of March High School and March Grammar School.

They left school either after ‘O’ levels in 1972 or ‘A’ levels in 1974, and the last time they got together was in 1988.

But as Corinne Whitehand, one of the organisers explained because they all become 60 years old this year, they thought it was time for a get together.

Thirty-five former classmates gathered at the Oliver Cromwell Hotel in March for a ‘good night and a catch-up with old friends’.
