Maypole Dancing – 1

One of three images showing the pupils of the Nursery from Skinningrove Primary school, performing their maypole dancing in the Square. Pauline Warren tells us: ”Think the woman on the left is the nursery teacher Mrs Troughton.” Andrea Foord advises: “This photograph was taken at the May Day Maypole dancing in the Square in 1981. The children dancing were in the Nursery class with the teacher being Mrs Troughton. I am in the background holding my baby daughter Joanna; with my mother holding my eldest child Rebecca. The children would practice in the hall of the Nursery/ old school for weeks before and a May Queen would be chosen and crowned by a ‘dignitary’! I had taught the Infant class prior to Rebecca’s birth and later returned for 3 years as a part time teacher in 1983.

Can anybody help with names?
