The girl on the far right is my sister Christine Potter (now Ramsay). The whole family emigrated to Australia late 1963. Christine and I will be visiting the UK with our mother Lena in September 2008 and will definitely be going to the church on September 10 so would love to catch up with any famiilar faces.

I agree that I am on the right of the picture.
We visited the church in 2008, seemed much smaller.
Still live in Australia - 3 daughters and 9 grandchildren.Hope to visit again soon.
Love to hear from anyone.
