Former pupils of a Chorley school can turn back the years and see some familiar faces.

The 1978 class of Southlands High School are coming together for a reunion.

The class, which left school the year the filmGrease was released, will be reuniting for an Olivia Newton John and John Travolta themed event.

It will take place at Shaw Hill Golf Club on Friday, March 9, from 7.30pm onwards.

Former pupils will be turning 50 this year, or will have already reached the big 5-0.

Pictured are Mrs Goulding’s class from around 1975/76, many of whom have already confirmed they will be attending the reunion.

Susan Setchell, nee Pidduck, who is helping to organise the event, said: “So far we have around 40 people coming but I think there were around 200 in the year.

“It would be nice to get most of the class, and it will be nice for anyone with friends and family who have moved away.”

Anyone interested in attending can call Susan on 07979 695550 or Brenda Etchells (nee Worswick) on 07886 559319.
