Red Cross

Carole Kellogg (nee Woodrow) has been in touch with us from Tucson, Arizona, after viewing our site and has sent us some photographs that were taken at events when her father, Fred L. Woodrow, was Chairman of the Saltburn & Marske Urban District Council in 1951.

This group appear to have been attending a formal occasion connected with the Red Cross.  Back row: Mr J. C. (Cyril) Pickering, ??, ??, Mr. F. Woodrow (wearing his chain of office), ??, ??.

Front row: Mrs. B. M. Spragg, ??, Mrs.N.Pickering, Mrs. Woodrow, ??, ??  Can anyone tell us more about this occasion?

Owen Rooks tells us: ”Mr J. C. (Cyril) Pickering was owner of Saltburn Motor Services and Mrs N.Pickering who I think held an official honorary position within the Saltburn branch of the Red Cross Society.” Frank Spragg confirms this identification with : “Sitting front row No 1 is Mrs B.M. Spragg (my mother).”

    Standing first left on the back row is, I think, Mr J.C.(Cyril) Pickering, owner of Saltburn Motor Services and third from left on the front row is Mrs N.Pickering who I think held an official honorary position within the Saltburn branch of the Red Cross Society.
