Former pupils of a house at Framlingham College have returned to enjoy a bottle of port which was laid down 50 years ago.

In 1964 a bottle of port was laid down by the housemaster of Moreau House, which was then a boys’ house.

Signed by the pupils, it carried the instruction it should be opened and enjoyed by them half a century later.

The tradition has been repeated by the current Moreau House residents, which is now a girls’ house.

During the final week of term, a signing event took place, with the girls of the house signing a new bottle to be laid down, and to be opened in 2064.

On Speech Day, the two bottles were presented together, and the original 1964 bottle was opened, with some of the Old Framlinghamians returning to enjoy a taste of their past.
