Thanks to Richard Powell for lending us this photo taken of the class of 1927-28 at ‘William Reed’ school. The girl in the middle marked with a cross is Edith Bone.

Richard’s wife Edith (nee Bone) was born in the village post office, the midwife who attended at her birth was Miss Dorothy Stevens, an aunt of Aubrey Stevens of the Stevens Bakery.

Edith’s grandfather used to farm the Oysterfleet farm and her father married into an old village family who ran the Post Office and Village Stores.

Can anyone name the other children in the class. A grandmother or grandfather perhaps. Who were the teachers?
