On June 3 1953 ninety eight local residents gathered for a group photograph outside the parish Scout Hut when rain brought their street party to an end. This year on Friday June 3, just under 150 people turned up to recreate the picture. They included Judith Morgan from Whitecross and Jean Martin from Tupsley who had both featured on the original photo. “The whole episode became an historic event in itself,” declared Bill Laws, and £300 of donations were raised for the Government's Ukraine Appeal.
Joe stepped in at the 11th hour, when our original photographer called in sick.
