Children's Christmas party

I have no information for this photograph and can only assume it is some form of Christmas party for the young children of Handcross and their mothers, plus one father!
Those I can name are: 4 Peggy Underdown (née Baldock), 5 Nicholas Underdown, 6 Graham Underdown, 24 Maureen Gasson, 28 Stuart Bailey, 29 June Bailey, 30 Ruth Cooper, 31 Roger Cooper.
Please can anyone add more names. Or correct those above!

The producer was Mary Warren and stage manager Laurence Ray.

Lovely photo, although I don't remember it!
I think it is me, Peter Cooper, on mum's lap, as brother Roger would have been fifteen, and a bit big!
As for other names, 1 and 2 are Pat Atkins and her mum, and I think 6 and 7, are Lester and Kevin Baigent.

Yes, you are correct. That is Lester and Kevin with their mum, and Pat (Trisha) and Sally Atkins.
No. 19 is Mrs Tina Pattenden with, I think, Pier Angeli and Anna Maria. They lived in Redgates in the High Street.
