Folk Dancers

A little bit grainy but it is from a newspaper cutting; the caption with image read: “Loftus County Modern School team won the sword dancing event in the York group of the National Folk Dance and Song Society’s competitions at York on Saturday.” Sadly the Archive didn’t know which Saturday but would guess about 1953/54, the names of those present are: Anne Kilvington, Sheila Wren, Audrey Magor, Della Burdett, Pat Collins, Dorothy Rouse, Pat Kidd, Joan Money, Sheila Mead, Anne Wilson, Gillian Preston, Neil Theaker, Edwin Warrell, Barry Matson, with one name missing the second girl on the back row, please let us know if you are out there or does anyone else know the missing girl’s name?

Eric Johnson commented: “The older gentleman back row far right, is Arthur Marshall (musician).
