Play at St Michael's School in the 1960s
Play at St Michael's School in the 1960s

Former pupils from St Michael’s Primary School might spot themselves the photograph top left (y1stmichaels132).

It was taken at a school play in the 1960s and sent in by Gary Scarfe.

The picture top right (y1prisonerqueen132) shows Doreen Griffith when she was crowned prisoner of war queen at Stanley School back in 1943. She could not remember much about the event, which took place when she was about 14 years old, but thinks it was a fundraiser.

A mad hatter’s disco raised £37 for the Netherton Village Hall Fund at Netherton Working Men’s Club, when the bottom right picture was taken back in 1985 (y1madhatter132). Pictured in playing card costumes are: Debra and Robert Anderson with, back row from left, Debra Wheeler, Adele Wheeler and Victoria Wakenshaw.
