Organisers for a reunion scheduled for students from Settle High School who were in the intake year 1958 and 1959 are seeking your help!  The event is  to take place at Settle Cricket Club on 29 September from 3pm onwards. A pie and pea meal is planned and the event will cost £5.  However, at present the organisers have not managed to contact everyone and have a particular problem tracing some of the girls as many have married and so the surname has changed. They are appealing to anyone who may be in touch with any ex-students from these year groups – they might be family or friends who have moved out of the area – to pass the message on so that as many as possible can come along to the event. The people in question will now be in their sixties and it thought that those who moved away may still have other  family members in the area. To find out more, pass on details or to reserve a place please contact  01729 822988 or 01535 692018.
