Were you part of the choir?

Have your say

How many of you might have attended New Road School, New Road, Buckland and were members of the school girls choir?

In 1963 during the Portsmouth Guildhall Music Festival the girls appeared on stage and Penny White of Havant has asked if there are any who remember the occasion.

She tells me that the music teacher was Miss Reynolds. Penny lived at 117 Shearer Road, Buckland with her mum and dad Doris and Edward.

Penny would like to know if there are any of the choir still about and are there any photographs still existing? Let me know please.
