Village Event 1959

We know very little about this event part from its taking place in 1959 in Drake’s Hall. Some of the people shown have been named (see below), but this is quite a long time ago and many of the adult generation will be no longer with us. Please leave a comment below if you can add/correct a name or tell us more about the day in question. What was the reason for the gathering? Any little detail will help, as combined with other people’s knowledge it may complete the story.
