Handcross Girl Guides

Handcross did not have a St. Trinian’s-style school in the village, but they did have a thriving Girl Guide company.
Here they are seen clambering over a pre-war car parked in the Social Club drive, with Nymans Cottages in the background.
The scanned photograph was kindly supplied by Penny Sargent in Queensland, Australia to me, Rosemary O’Shea, who added the names.

I was 14 when this photo was taken and it brings back memories of all of the pretty girls that I was always too shy to talk to.
A lovely, evocative and happy picture.

What a great picture. I remember a great number of the girls in the picture as I went to school with them at Cuckfield Secondary School when it opened.
My name then was Jean Hill and some will remember me as the girl who took music lessons with teacher Mr Wingham instead of the dreaded P.E. classes with Miss McConachie !!
I would love to hear how some of you are ?
