About this memory

Frances Reid, is in the second from front row on the left with the white dress. She seems to think it was 1965 and an annual party for children of local ratepayers (Graeme Reid)

It might have been a women’s guild party for the children. I can see my brothers Alex and James Neil and sister Janette in the bottom left hand corner. I’m not in the photo though.(Dorothy Jones)

Thanks to Robert Laird, Dorothy Jones and Graeme Reid for the photo and details.
