Hi Nadine
I remember you and your mum and dad from my Newtown days. You lived in Victoria Street, next door to Mrs Liptrot's (later Ralph Freeman's grocers shop). I lived at number 40 Victoria Street in the house adjoining my parents' grocers and confectioners shop. I particularly remember Mr McDonald, Vicar of St. Mark's, introducing the walking day banners with biblical quotations to replace the old picture banners, and have many happy memories of St. Mark's Church, Newtown.
Best wishes, Michael Mason

Christine Croston says: I can see Christine Lancaster...so I must have been at the back with you Jean...
I had my hair up that year; Malcom Foster did it.
Happy days...

Pamela yes it is you hiding behind the rope! How lovely to hear from you, I have often thought of you and wondered how you are. If you would like to catch up, please drop me a line.

Fascinating to see these old pictures, though I was long gone by 1968. Quite a different world now, at least for me in Texas. I do recall Enid Smallshaw being in the same year at St Marks.

Hi Enid, how are you? I am still in Glasgow, although sadly Felix died 2+years ago. I found Gummerson papers in my dad's box if you would like me to send them.
