Another view of the decorated balconies from the ground beneath Shakespeare House.

A cracking shot on the grass in front of John Bacon Court. The tall girl on the left is Tina Willis. The little lad kneeling at the front is Paul Wood, and the girl and boy standing immediately behind him are Vicky, and Anthony Fallows. Behind Anthony (second from the right) is Tony Cook. On the far right is Gary Davies, and in the centre at the back is David Traynor. Can anybody recognise anybody else?


Again in front of John Bacon Court but this time facing the Dale. On the back row are Ernie Christian, Neil Statham, Darren Gordon, Lesley Ferris, Jacqueline. On the front row are Alison Cook (far left), and Paul Woods in the middle. Can you name anyone else?


Again in between John Bacon Court and Shelley House (on the right). In the back row are Dave Cook, Julie Christine Cooney, and Robert Wood. Also in the picture are Maris Wade (far left in the middle row) and Steve Love (far right of the middle row). Do you recognise anyone else?
