Bamfurlong Methodist Church Walking day, 1965 on Lily Lane at Bamfurlong. In Bamfurlong today, there are two streets named, Enid Place & Dorothy Walk. These streets were named after two ladies who ran the sunday school, at the methodist church in Bamfurlong in the early 1960's. Enid was the Sunday school teacher and Dorothy used to play the piano, and help Enid look after the children. Enid died during the 1960's I don't know what happened to Dorothy.

The lady in the foreground wearing the light blue dress, white cardigan and holding a ribbon in her left hand was Dorothy.

Definitely Rita Conway in blue dress. Remember her well.
I believe Dorothy's last name was Lavery. Can't remember Enid's.
