Reunion: CNS class of ‘79

The 1970s are back… at least for the CNS class of 1979, with former Eaton CNS students heading back from half-way across the world for a reunion on May 28.
Who remembers the ‘S’ year production of Oliver, lunch in the Barn, making the Jubilee mosaic or Mr Wilkinson’s purple crimplene trousers?
The Class of ’79 and those who carried on into sixth form, leaving in 1980 or 81, will gather at the Unthank Arms and the organisers are keen to spread the word to anyone from their year.
The reunion has been organised by former students, brought together by Donna Jayne Leverett, who now lives in Australia but set up a Facebook group last year. “I come back to Norwich regularly, and I’m still best friends with people from my class at CNS,” said Donna. “Many have stayed in Norwich, but others have gone as far afield as Dubai, Canada and The States.
“Catching up has been quite surprising at times, but we’ve all found we have more in common than we expected.”
Nick South, from Norwich, is one of the people helping to organise the night and will be running the disco, replete with hits from the days when many attendees had a little more hair and a little less waistline. “We’ll be meeting at the Unthank Arms from around 6pm onwards and everyone’s welcome – including families and children,” said Nick.
“It’s been a long time and not everyone from our year photo is still with us, so we want to make the most of meeting up now. We can guarantee we’re a friendly group and we’d love to see everyone!”
Anyone who’d like to find out more is welcome to check out the Facebook group: CNS – the Class of ’79. Tickets for the evening are £18.50, which includes a barbecue and disco.
