Handcross School sports day 1957 (4 of 4)

At the end of the Handcross School’s sports day the prizegiving took place on the veranda of the old pavilion in the recreation ground.
Many of the children have been captured in this photograph, as were many of the mothers who have turned up for the event.
I have been able to identify only 11 as follows. The Large Version has numbers attached.
1 Mrs Cath Chamberlain, 2 Mrs Norah Housby, 3 Mrs Betty Sargent, 4 Mrs Winifred Leppard, 5 Mrs Elsie Hotten (mother-in-law to 6), 6 Mrs Annie Hotten, 7 Wendy Cheeseman, 8 Barbara Housby, 9 Daphne Boxall, 10 Carol Ray, 11 Gill Leppard.
I would be very grateful if anyone can identify any of the others, together with their location.
