We are grateful for the following information from Elaine Harrison (nee Ogg): Kath Burkill is on the front row. She is wearing a pale coat, left of the lady with a floral coat, on the right of the picture.  She has a dark handbag on her left arm and is three people left of the wheelchair.  She has white hair.  Exactly on her left is my father - Charles Frederick Ogg.  My mother - (Audrey Ogg) is on the front row 3 left of Kath and she is wearing a floral skirt, pale sweater and a dark cardigan.  My mother seems to think that the event was the anniversary of the opening of the village school in either 1928 or 1929.  She started school the year the new school opened. She was born in February 1924. My father transferred there from the National School down by the Church. He was born in 1922 and died in 1991 so the photo was taken some time before then. Vi Clark is also on the picture.  She is wearing a darkish geometric patterned dress. She is 4 to the left of the very tall suited man who I think is Mr Sparks the headmaster (He came after Miss Brown in the year my sister Cynthia took her 11 plus 3 years after I left).  Madge Johnson, Alan Codling, and Mr Taylor - son of the village constable - are also on the picture.

We are grateful for the following information from Jane Harry (nee Bell):

The lady in the wheel chair to the left of the picture is my late Auntie, Margaret Ellenton and the man directly behind her is my late uncle, Les Ellenton. The occasion was the 50th anniversary of the school and I believe it was held in 1977, I remember baking quite a lot of sausage rolls toward the buffet!  My mother and father would also be on the photograph but I can't make them out. Their names were Vi and Don Bell.

Sandra is unsure of the exact destination of the cheque, but believes that the money was raised by children learning spellings.
