Handcross Social Club outing

There is sparse information supplied with this photograph of an outing organised by Handcross Social Club in 1952.
Those identified so far are Ron Verlander (crooked cap in the front row), standing next to Raymond Trickey on Ron's left.
In the front row with a white bonnet is Doreen Kemp, standing next to Rosemary O'Shea, both from Truggers.
The only adult recognised is Mrs Verlander standing behind the well-dressed boy standing on Ron Verlander's right.
In the foreground is Horace Mills’ bulldog, Winston. Horace was President of the Club.
Please can anyone name more?

They are all dressed for winter.
Perhaps off to a pantomime at Brighton.

I can spot Mr Edward Schwarz, the schoolmaster who lived at Gilhams in Coos Lane.
He is at the back right with glasses and looking to his left.

I am wondering if the last lady on the right with the furry gloves is Mrs Ivy who ran an antique or bric-a-brac shop in the third of three shops next to the Zoar Baptist chapel. My grandmother, Mrs Mabel Field, took over the sweet shop next to the chapel from Miss Jackman (picture #125), and I think the shop in the middle was not a gentleman’s outfitters as E. S. Hibbs and Sons was, but certainly sold clothes like Van Heusen shirts, ties, and tie pins.
At the back, half hidden, could be Mrs Marjory Trickey with hat and glasses.
