MORE than 200 people enjoyed a tea party at Westover Primary School, Baffins, to mark its 80th anniversary.

Pupils and children made an array of cakes for the event and enjoyed talking about their experiences at the school.

A number of former pupils also attended, including two who started at the school the year it opened in 1932.

Lyn Brooks, who was headteacher from 1968 to 1988, went to the tea party and said it was lovely to go back and see the changes to the school, and meet old friends.

One of the organisers Sue Kenward, of Salcombe Ave, Copnor, said: ‘There was talk about air raid shelters, war years and May poles and what school life was like years ago.

‘Everyone enjoyed themselves and it was very interesting listening to all the comments about the school.

‘One lady said how she felt it was a very happy school to attend and still is to this day.

‘We would like to thank everyone who came to celebrate the 80 years with us, making it a day to remember, and the people who wrote down their memories of school life, which we are going to put into a book.’
