    “I would suggest that this photo was taken well after 1960 as I knew/know Colin Organ as we are the same age, in the photo he would be around 18/19. Also the ladies are wearing mini skirts and they were not the fashion until 1965/6.”

  • Thanks Paul – by all accounts they certainly were a magical part of the Fielding and Platt year. What do you remember about them? Were you involved with organising them too or did you attend them as a kid?

  • I remember those parties with great affection.

  • Thank you, Dee, it’s great that you remember your colleagues on the Christmas Party Committee! I wonder if you can recall some of things you and the committee did to prepare for the parties and to make them magical for the children? The canteen in the photograph looks beautifully decorated – did you make the decorations yourselves?

  • I think the missing person on the front row is Maidie Stephens.

    (from Denise Badham as was)
