The Easter Bonnet Winners are!

John and Jean Weir (nee Cocks) are seen with it is believed the winners of Carlin How Women’s Institute Easter Bonnet competition of 1968. As yet we do not know the names of the winners; however Brian Young tells us: ”Gentleman in middle  is Leslie Nicholson, he had a shop in Brotton High Street.” Derick Pearson advises: ”Leslie of Nicholson and Pettys of Brotton was also involved with Carlin How chapel and also a Magistrate.” Derick also believes the lady on the far right of the picture was called Pat or Pam and was a hairdresser from Queen Street, Carlin How.
