Plans for Spalding school reunion could be cancelled if more people don’t sign up





The organiser of a 40th anniversary school reunion is urging more people to sign up and support the event, as she fears it may not go ahead if not enough people attend.

Tracie Sharp (nee Walkley) is calling on all those who left both the Spalding Gleed Boys’ and Gleed Girls’ schools in 1984 to sign up for the get together, which she is hosting at the Spalding Services Club, in High Street, on Saturday, June 22.

As well as the chance to catch up and reminisce with schoolmates there will also be food, dancing and a special DJ set from former pupil Caroline Walton (nee Overton), who now lives in the Isle of Wight, where she works as a DJ.

“We had a small reunion at the Consti Club a couple of years ago, which about 20 or 25 people attended,’ said Tracie, who now lives in Portsmouth, where she is the area manager for Co-Op Funeral Care. “That was girls only and a lot of people who couldn’t make it said that they would definitely come to the next one, and that we needed to do something to mark the 40th year since we left school.

“So far, I’ve only sold about ten tickets, and although that will just about cover the cost of the hall, the plan is to have food as well. So, we’ve opened it up to the boys too and would love to get at least 50 people there.

“It’s difficult as I don’t live in Spalding anymore, although my family still do, but I’ve created a Facebook group and have been trying to spread the word about the reunion.

“It would be great to catch up with everyone and find out what people have been doing since they left school.”

Tracie is also hoping her former classmates – she was in class 5M1, Miss Gledhill’s form in 1984 – can dig out any old school photos to send to her ahead of the night, so she can print some copies off to display in the hall.

*Tickets for the Class of 1984 Gleed School Reunion, which starts at 7.30pm, are £15 each and available from Eventbrite or you can follow facebook.com/Gleedgirls2022 to find out more.
