Helen Miller (Staff 85-09) has sent in the following:

“Does anyone remember Foli Folarin-Coker (“Coker”) (F/AC 82-84)?
When I was in Lagos, Nigeria, at the end of September for an educational exhibition, I had a meeting with a lady who wanted to know where I lived and some details of my background.  When West Cumbria was mentioned, the lady replied ‘not the school with the little train running through it – that is where my husband was educated!’ We all met the following day and reminisced about the school. Folarin is now a very successful businessman. He is hoping to arrange a nostalgic visit to St. Bees with his family during one of his trips to the U.K. some time in the future.  It really is a very small world!”
