Handcross Ladies Keep Fit

The ladies of the Handcross Keep Fit Group are running through their routine during a rehearsal for a variety show due to be held in the Parish Hall.
The keep fit regime came into being through the appearances on the BBC of the country’s first health guru, Eileen Fowler (1906-2000), who thought that keeping fit should be fun. Although, in this picture, the members do not seem convinced!
I can recognise my mother, Nora Ray, in the right foreground, and Penny Housby at the back, second from the left, probably with her sister, Barbara, on her right.
Please can anyone name any of the others?

Barbara Alderson, correctly identified by Tim Sired above, has today informed me that the lady behind Nora Ray is Pauline, but she cannot recall her surname. She lived close to the garage at Plummers Plain.
