This picture from Keith Bonsor’s collection was taken in the Womens Institute Hall in the early 1960’s. Standing at the back is Mrs Hobbs who was a pianist well known on the Island for playing in orchestras and giving lessons. Immediately in front of her is Keith’s mother Margaret.
There is a great array of cakes and nibbles in the front. We are not sure what the occasion was but they had fetes, bazaars and sponge competitions where Mr Grout was the judge.
If anyone tell us the occasion or name any of the other ladies please comment below.
