A primary school in Stoke Ash is calling on pupils, teachers and governors of past and present to celebrate 100 years of teaching and learning at the school - just three days before a decision is expected on its future.

Stoke Ash Primary School, near Eye, is facing closure from Suffolk County Council. Cabinet is set to decide the fate of the school, which saw pupil numbers drop from 21 in September to three, on June 10.

Event organiser Keith Marlow- who did not want to comment on the proposed closure of the school, told the Diss Express: “It is a get together of past teachers, governors and pupils. We are getting a lot of old pictures in, dating back to the 1930s, so some of the older residents might recognise some of their family.

“It is a get together for a chat and a chance to reminisce.”

There will also be pictures and memorabilia on display at the event.

It will be held at the school on Saturday, June 7, from 11am to 4pm. Refreshments will be available. If you have any old pictures, memorabilia that can be borrowed for the display, please contact Keith Marlow on 01379 678822.
