Val Pegler (nee Tilling ) tells us:
This picture is taken in the field opposite Happyland (Avenue Terrace). I’m the one on the left with my bucket in the air. I was 15 then in 1960 – I’ll be 74 this year. Dawn Sanders is sitting on the tractor, Joyce Bullingham is third along from me. Mrs Elizabeth Gingell is the lady with glasses standing in front. We were picking potatoes for the farmer – Mr Wilcox from Court Farm by the Ocean on the canal.
It was hard work but we always had a laugh!
