Some of the Elliott Reunions     Back to Main Index

This is what sometimes goes on at reunions! Top left image show team ELF (Eyre Lambert Freeman) around 1960. Top right shows two of them at the 2004 Reunion but Eyre is missing. Finally at the 2008 reunion, all three got together to recreate a scene from nearly 50 years ago Note how that tree has grown as well as ELF's waistline

The following group of images are from the Thirty Years of the Elliott School in Putney Reunion, in 1986

This was the idea of Marjorie Dean, her sister, 'Chalky' White and Garth Gibson, aided from within the School by Barbara Scarrott, Freda Mizen and Dorothy Reace. Regrettably it was not well supported by many of the Teachers who were teaching there at the time. Mr Bastin brought along a film of the Opening in 1957 and Miss Scarrott mounted a collection of photos on large sheets together with Blazer Badges and Ties and various Memorabilia. It is to be regretted that what happened to these items is unclear today.

We are now looking at images from the 2006 Reunion to celebrate the Putney Elliott reaching Fifty

The newspaper clipping refers to the fact that while organising the event, the Webmaster was using the Friends Reunited Website to pass messages and the net result was that the Elliott became the most active School on Friends Reunited.

The webmaster organised a smaller group reunion in 2008 mainly for the year that started with him in 1958 fifty years earlier. This are some images from the day.


The Mural above the Stairs to the Workshops and Gyms looking in very poor condition, but still surviving at that time.

The Webmaster Andy Lambert with his best mate Don Freeman on the Teachers Balcony they were not allowed on in the Sixties

Ron O'Neill 1960-64 presenting the fruit bowl he made at the school 43 years before, to the School.

I wonder what happened to it now the Elliott is no more?
