Maypole Dancing – 2

A further image with the pupils from Skinningrove Primary dancing on what looks like a cool May morning. Timm’s Coffee House (before it was re-developed) in the background. We asked : ”Can anybody assist with names?”. Andrea Foord has informed us: ”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.
