I'm sorry I don't know if these children belonged to Worsley Mesnes Methodist Church or St. James' but they are walking past the newly built Jet Filling Station with their huge basket of flowers.
No Vicarage Estate built then; and is that the remains of an old barn behind the fence?
The location of this is now 'Tesco Express'.

The children were from St James Poolstock and I think it's me in the lilac dress . It must have been around 1962 I think because I was 15 at the time. (I remember that dress too)
