A group of happy young children in uniform are pictured here in what must be the Methodist Church Hall. Strings hang down from a thin wooden frame over the well.

If you know which group this is, or have any interesting memories or comments to help us shed light on this obviously fun event, let us know below. The photograph dates from 27th November 1965.

  • The girl at the front are Girl Guiding Brownies, the badges and placement is recognisable.

    (I have a postcode from Olave Baden-Powell to a Mrs R ‘Manneld’ (possible slightly different surname’) who lived at St Leu on Green Lane. She will have been a guiding leader in 1943 as the postcard thanks her for ‘all that you are doing’ , I was looking for some background to her when I found this.)

  • Could the uniforms be Brownies or Guides both associated with the Methodist Church, or Girls Life Brigade associated with the Baptist Church, or the other way around. I was in both clubs in the 50’s.

  • By the date and picture – I would guess it was the annual Yule Tide Fayre!! Spent many happy hours at this annual function for church funds over the years
