A former pupil from a Goodmayes school has launched a search to try and find former classmates.
Roy Tyzack attended Mayfield Secondary Boys School in Goodmayes Lane between 1958 and 1962.
He said: “I went to a small reunion last year and I was delighted to meet up with some old friends. The memories came flooding back.
“It has fallen on me to arrange a reunion this year and I would love to see some more of my former schoolfriends and teachers turn up.”
Mr Tyzack, a retired policeman who lives in Navestock near Brentwood, Essex, and used to work at the old police station in Ilford Hill until the late 1980s.
The 67-year-old is looking for former pupils who left the school between 1962 and 1964, or were a member of the teaching staff at Mayfield School.
If this is you, call 01277 372285, 07775 128672 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mr Tyzack said: “I know we’re fairly far flung all over the country and abroad but we would really like to see as many people as possible.”
A website for former pupils has also been set up, visit mayfieldmemories.me.uk for more information.
