A school reunion has been organised for pupils who left what is now known as Exmouth Community College in 1985.

The event will be for former students who remember being taught by the 'legendary' Doc Kevern, walking across Phear Park to get from one campus to the other and attending under 18s discos at Samantha's.

The idea for a reunion came as the students who left school 34 years ago would be turning 50 this year.

Clayre Mears, who is organising the event along with former classmate Claire White, said: "Our class year was especially friendly - it was a time when you had fun in and out of the classroom."

The event will take place on Friday, November 8, at the Great Western Railway Staff Association Club, in Royal Avenue.
