Former pupils invited to share memories of former school house
10:20am Saturday 18th January 2014 in Local
FORMER pupils of a Bromsgrove school are being asked to share their memories as part of a new exhibition.
In 2012 the former school house in Church Lane was converted into the Stoke Association's national headquarters.
The Life After Stroke centre cost £2.2 million, and is the first centre nationally delivering training for volunteers and care workers, so they can support stroke victims and their families.
The centre is being transformed in phases, and the official opening of the second part of the centre is being held in March.
Phase two has seen the transformation of the old headmaster's house into a multimedia centre and facilities for stroke survivors.
Organisers want to celebrate the history of the site and the former school at the opening. Former pupils, and Bromsgrove residents, are being invited to share their memories and photographs, which will be used in the exhibition.
Townsfolk who have fond memories of their time at the school house have already been sharing them with staff at the centre.
In October, ex-pupils and sisters Barbara Rogers and Sue Kelly toured the centre, and saw how it had changed.
Barbara said: “I have very fond memories of my time at the school; I can still remember working away in the large classrooms with wooden floors.
“The school had a very warm, friendly atmosphere, and it really is wonderful that this lives on in the current Life After Stroke Centre.”
Anyone who wants to share their memories with the charity can do so in a variety of ways.
They can either call 01527 903903, email firstname.lastname@example.org or write to the Life After Stroke Centre, Church Lane, Bromsgrove, B61 8RA.
Any photographs provided will be returned to people.
