PAST pupils of a community school gathered together for its first reunion in 40 years.

Former students of the class of 1972 at Worle Community School came together at the Windsor Castle in Upper Bristol Road, Weston, to celebrate and reminisce about their school days.

The reunion was held in memory of one of the class’ former pupils Mark Taylor, who had spoken of organising a reunion before he died.

Mark, who died of cancer in 2009 aged 54, was a paraplegic and worked tirelessly to help others despite his condition.

He was also given a bravery award by police after coming to the aid of a doorman who was attacked in the town in 2003.
