I remember Susan Shepherd falling and dislocating her knee cap on a day trip to Rhyl with Belle Green School.I still have the brooch I bought for my mother that day.

The name of the girl at the back is Avis Ridley not Mavis Wrighley. Who now lives in Beverley in East Yorkshire

Mr Barnes was the Headmaster on the trip to Ryll and immediately rang the emergency services to deal with the situation. We had a good day.

Hello Josie, I am a very close friend of Avis and have just been browsing through looking for photos of her and saw your comments. I regret to tell you Avis died on 25th August after a short but brave battle with cancer.
