  • I think the boy at the very front on the right hand side of the photograph might be Stuart Spalding.

  • Thanks Lynn. Can you confirm where the picture was taken? I expect it was the hall in the new High School, but I really don’t know. Best wishes, Neil Fortey

  • The boy on first row left hand side is, I think, Peter Donger from the Hollies Farm in Easthorpe. As for where it’s taken, I’m not sure but I did attend the Cubs with him on a couple of occasions and, I stand to be corrected on this, I think at the old VC Hall at the playing fields. We used to bike along the footpath from Easthorpe Lane past what l think was doctor Woll’s surgery on the left. The gray matter is a little bit cloudy these days.

  • Dear Michael and Tony, thanks for sorting out the details of this photograph. Where would this archive be without supporters such as yourselves? With best wishes, Neil.
