A trip to the capital

These children from Newbold Methodist Youth Club were on a visit to London in the early 1960s. The picture has been supplied by Penny Woodford (nee Hodgkiss). She can name the following: Robert Williams, Pat Cunningham, her sister Angela Hodgkiss, Keith Oaks, herself, Penny Hodgkiss, Sheila Newby, Margaret Newby, group leader Peter Everrit, area minister Alf Baxter, her parents Mona and Sid Hodgkiss, Barbara Turner, Malcolm and Rodney Letts, possibly Frank Fitzpatrick. Her brother Antony Hodgkiss was on the trip but appears not to be on the photo.
