Handcross Band playing carols in the High Street

In the lead up to Christmas, keen members of Handcross Band braved the cold and played carols in the Handcross High Street; in this photograph outside the newsagent’s shop of Roger Ray.
From the left they are Mrs Vi Johnson, Reg Skeats, Unknown, Stan Gasson, Johnny Taylor (Burgess Hill), Edie Bird, and “Erbie”.
The Large Version shows a poster promoting the concert at St Wilfreds School, Crawley. See picture #1251.
Click on Open Document to read a newspaper cutting of a football match between Handcross Band and the darts team from the Fountain Inn. It probably seemed like a good idea when it was arranged after a few drinks in the pub!
