    Hello all – and Collin!

    My sister found this picture on the website and took great pleasure in pointing out that I was one of only two children ‘not named’….. So I am identifying myself as the young lady standing, second from the right, next to Linda Wills. My name then was just Elizabeth Roullier (no Bunz yet 😉

    Also, a querie as to the date of the picture…. In 1963, I would have been only 6, turning 7 at the end of September….. I think this is more like 1965…. Not that it really matters, I suppose..

    Anyway, I have so enjoyed seeing it and remember all those faces so well. I just loved Mrs. Stirrat.

      Hi Colin,
      I think the school pupils in the group photo had performed some maypole dances at the village fete. I was already at the High School in Brackley, so Liz Roullier is correct in thinking it was most likely 1965. I remember Mrs Stirrat asking me if I would step in, at short notice, as she needed an extra dancer. I think that the other un-named girl may be Caroline Deeks.
