Former pupils who went to KES in King’s Lynn invited to join Old Lennesians

Did you go to KES in King's Lynn..? The Old Lennensians are on the look out for new members.

The organisation, revived by former King Edward VII pupils in 2006, has a busy social calendar. Now it's looking to expand.

Former pupil from 1964 - '71 and current committee member Andrew Stephen said: 'I have been a member for three years now and I can honestly say that being an Old Lennensian has given me a great deal of pleasure.

'I had no particular interest in old school reunions and that kind of thing until a chance encounter with another old boy persuaded me to give it a chance.

'It's not so much a question of wallowing in nostalgia as realising how much an entire career depends on those few years at secondary school.

'The social gatherings are not just crusty old formal occasions of business for a self congratulatory body of retired and ageing men, it's a chance to catch up with old friends and see what rich and varied lives they have had.

'Nostalgia belongs to us all and I for one would like to hear the stories of the people I used to know.

'It would be fascinating to see where they are now, what they're doing and especially what they look like.' Lennesians have members scattered as far away as Hong Kong, New York and Australia. They believe there are many more former KES pupils closer to home.

Membership costs �7 a year, which includes newsletters. There are also lunches and other social fixtures like bowls and golf matches between members and school staff.
