Hi Beverley I remember you well now :-) I used to live on Walthew Lane and knew your mum very well. How is she keeping?

Does anyone recognise the couple with the baby standing opposite the "walk"?

Hiya Ck. What is your name?? My mum is keeping very well. We are just looking through all the old pictures now.

She thinks the girls on the ribbon are L-R ?? Reeves, Rosemary Proctor, My mum Mavis Pennington, Marlene Hall, Barbara Lowe...These may be wrong though her memory isnt what it used to be!!
