Dances (3 of 6) - Rock 'n' Roll comes to Handcross

Runners-up in the Rock and Roll competition featured on picture #1672 were Geoff Munn and his wife, Pauline (née Tulley).
The prizes were presented by the reigning British Legion beauty queen, Pauline Wilson from Pease Pottage.
I can recall the Handcross Rock and Roll Club which held dances weekly in the Parish Hall. I was too young to join in but I assume that the 78rpm records were played on a very basic record player. I can remember Robert Wheeler from Hoadlands proudly wearing a sweater covered with musical crotchets and quavers. The competition winners received similar sweaters as their prizes donated by Mr John Smith (see picture #1223).
