A 40-year school reunion in Market Drayton has been delayed by a year because of the coronavirus crisis.

The class of 1980 met up earlier this year ahead of their full reunion, which was due to take place in August

The class of 1980 from the Grove School had been looking forward to meeting up on August 22 but the pandemic meant that the organisers had to call it off.

One of the group, Sarah O'connor, said: "Our reunion was due to take place on August 22. Due to Covid-19 we have had to postpone and we have set a new date of August 21, 2021.

"The reunion is for the Grove School class of 1980. Anyone who wants further information can join our Facebook group."
