- Credit: Archant
Wartime memories will be shared and friendships rekindled this weekend when the Lowestoft Evacuees' Association stages its annual winter reunion.
The gathering takes place at the Stella Maris Hall in Gordon Road, Lowestoft from 10.30am to 1pm this Saturday, December 7.
In June 1940 more than 3,000 schoolchildren left Lowestoft on five trains on their way to rural Derbyshire - and almost 80 years on they still hold their two major reunions each year in Lowestoft.
All former Second World War school evacuees and their guests are warmly invited to attend the Lowestoft Evacuees Committee annual winter gathering with a guest at a contribution of £1 per head.
Secretary Chris Brooks said: "Plans for the 80th anniversary in June 2020 will be discussed."
