Members of Ushaw Moor Women’s Institute, looks like their Christmas party (1960’s). Elsie Clegg in the middle cutting the cake and a very young Lilly Sowerby (nee Grayson) back row first left. Lots of local faces to bring back memories.

  • Margaret Thompson Paul Clough I remember you gran Bessie Ayre she was a lovely person.

  • Paul Clough Wonderful photo. Lots of faces to recognise.
  • Michael Dickinson My grandma Emily Dickinson is probably on here somewhere. She used to attend chapel regularly and was buried from there when she died.

Village people attending the opening ceremony of St Luke’s New Church Hall, the old hut having being demolished. I am in this photo, I wonder if anyone remembers me.
