Former students of all ages are being invited to attend a gathering at Carlton le Willows Academy for the launch of a society aimed at celebrating 60 years of education on the Gedling site.
The Salix Society aims to bring together former students of the Gedling school, from its creation as a grammar school in 1953 – to its current position as one of the best performing schools in the county.
Society chairman Steve Watts has high hopes of attracting a bumper crowd for the inaugural meeting, from 2pm – 5pm, on October 6 and is urging everyone who has been involved with the school at some point in its past to come along.
Mayor of Gedling Coun Barbara Miller has already confirmed her attendance and organisers are hopeful that Gedling MP Vernon Coaker will also find time in his busy schedule to attend the event.
Free tickets are available for all former students and staff from 1953 – 2018, with guests getting the chance of a guided tour of Carlton le Willows Academy, see memorabilia displays from across the years and also meet members of the Salix Society committee.
Current Academy students are currently taking part in a competition to design a logo for the new Salix Society, which will also be judged on the launch date.
