Strutts reunion
Strutts reunion

A FAMOUS face was among guests at a school reunion in Belper on Saturday.

Former Blue Peter television presenter Simon Groom was among ex-pupils, from various decades, who gathered for a Strutts Grammar School get-together at the Strutts Centre, on Derby Road.

Mr Groom was the guest speaker for the evening and he amused the audience with his memories of 1961, the year he started at the school.

He even admitted to several misdemeanours during his time there!

Guests were also shown around the building, which is now being used as a community centre, with many events and groups from the town now meeting there.
