An appeal in The Falkirk Herald has brought two old school friends back together.

Mary Kelly and Margaret Baird (nee McMahon) were inseparable chums at St Mungo’s High School back in the early 60s, but hadn’t seen each other since they left almost 50 years ago.

Mary put a plea in the paper in September to get in touch with Margaret, who now lives in Armadale, and through Margaret’s niece she got in touch to say she’d like to see her old pal too.

Mary said: “We met last Wednesday for the time in about 50 years and it was great.

“We had a lovely time and chatted about old school photos and are planing to meet up every month now that we are back in touch.

“We would both like to thank The Falkirk Herald for making it possible.”
