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.

      Betty Madison was my mums best friend, I called her Aunty Betty and I grew up with Hal Janet and Peter. Some of the other faces look familiar but as I was only 11 when I left its hard to put names to them.

    I’ve just come across this photo and have noticed my nanna Mandy 😀 Mandy Hall
    She is the 4th one in on the second row from the top left passed away a long time when I was about 7 years of age I’m now 47 so a good 40 years ago
    She was a lovely lady as I remember her husband Jack Hall was a keen gardener – he looked after ushawmoor cemetery that over looks Oak ridge road – they lived at no 48 I used to watch my grandad doing the cemetery grounds with binoculars from there livng room window 😃 they were good times – as I remember Jack used to be in ushaw moor leek club I remember him growing leeks – veg and he always had loads of beautiful flowers in the garden – eye the good old days .
