recorder group in 1965295 viewsPicture shows some of my top, brilliant recorder group in 1965. Four of the girls in the front row are Susan Hayward, Susan Ridge, Judith Beeston and Jenny Tippett-Iles. The last two have got in touch since I sent in an earlier picture and the three of us met at my home in April, reminiscing and nattering for almost 6½ hours. We ended the meeting by playing one of the recorder tunes they performed at the concert pictured!

Christine Harral has been in touch, and identified herself as being on the front row 3rd from the left.
