Oh my word, I have only just seen this photo. I could see my sister Kay Warrener straight away, ha ha. how lovely this was to see, it made me go cold and I'm sure that could be me at the end on the left at the end. Where did you get this photo. Hi Sherry, how are you? would love to hear from you. x

The photo was in a whole lot that my mother (Eva Coleman) had - there were so many people it seemed a good opportunity to bring back some memories.

My sister Eileen, and my Brother Ronald are in the picture as noted.

Chris, I didn't even know this photo exsisted, But it was lovely to see it, Thank you for sharing. The girl behind the little one on the steps is my sister Pam Warrener. She remembers playing Mary, and your brother Ronald playing Joseph, But she believe's it was a Nativity play at the school. But she can't remember this photo being taken at the hall.... Jean

Hello Jean - Ted let me know this week that you had left a message. Please e-mail me when you have time - I remember you `big girls` when we used to play together in the Officers House. I can just remember your Dad too - I expect you can mine? They lay side by side in the Church of the Holy Spirit in the Harbour, bless them. sherry.bowe@ntlworld.com Look forward to hearing from you!

A flash from the past and love all the memories this photo conjures up.Recently began to visit Rye Harbour with my sister Colette and we love it. Thanks for posting this photo Chris.It was so special meeting you and Derek and Ted after all these years. We plan to make it a regular thing and anyone wishing to join us are heartily welcome. Would love to hear from anyone who remembers me or my family - the Munroe's from the coastguards.

Anyone remember my uncle & auntie - "Dick" and Anne Sumner(s) (maybe Summers). Lived next door to the Inkerman pub on harbour road. Dick worked at the aggregate plant - both now buried in local church.
