FORMER pupils of Berkeley Vale School, Berkeley Vale Community school and the Vale of Berkeley College got together to swap stories and reminisce about their schooldays at a reunion at the weekend.
Friends Steve Mansell, Mally O’Connell, Sue Elliot and Nikki Harris organised the bash, which took place at Hamfield Leisure (Berkeley Power Station Club) on Saturday evening.
Everyone who studied there, between 1971 up to 2011 when it closed, was invited to come along.
All the money from ticket sales is going to Berkeley and Sharpness Scouts and Guides, in memory of former scout leader Pat Day.
Steve said: “The idea for the night came from my friend Mally O’Connell – he suggested maybe having a reunion at some point after lockdown.
“I got in touch and with Nikki Harris Sue Elliot and together we started the Berkeley Vale Big School Reunion rolling.
“We had a meeting and decided to choose to give all the money from the ticket sales to the Berkeley and Sharpness Scouts and Guides in memory of the great Pat Day, who passed away recently and was the scout leader for Berkeley.”
There was a disco and plenty of space to chat with old school chums.
The night featured a soundtrack of top tracks from the 1960s to the 2010s.
