They were brought together in evacuation during the Second World War. Now, decades later, they will be brought back together in less perilous circumstances.
The Lowestoft Evacuees Committee is hosting its annual summer reunion this weekend, giving people from the town evacuated during the conflict the opportunity to catch up and reminisce.
The reunion is due to be held at Stella Maris Hall on Saturday, June 3, and will see former evacuees provided with refreshments and a buffet lunch.
Around 3,500 children and teachers from the town were evacuated to the Midlands during the war and the reunion will create an opportunity for these people to share memories and stories of this period.
In previous years, former pupils of several evacuated schools including Gorleston Road School, Church Road Senior Girls School and Church Road Junior School have all attended.
