Mrs Shail And Some Pupils – 1974?

Mrs Shail And Some Pupils - 1974?

A photo taken on the school field as we can see West Park Avenue and Harry Dack Infant School. Mrs Heseltine later remarried and became Mrs Shail. Some of the named pupils are:- Christopher Colbeck, Elliott Carr, Kerry Taylor, Julie Hadfield, Philip Sanderson, Paul Mann and Victoria Bell. This photgraph has provoked some queries. The girl in the orange t-shirt is identified as Karen Morrison (thanks for the information), she identifies Kerry Taylor (yellow and red dress, identified by Kerry Taylor) and Julie Hadfield (blonde haired girl, yellow t-shirt – identified by Barbara Hale). Michael Radford is now identified as the boy to Mrs Heseltine’s right. Thanks to Karen Addison (morrison) for that update.
