A PHOTO of schoolchildren dancing around the maypole evoked memories for one reader when it featured in the Hereford Times recently.

The photo, in the June 18 edition, showed pupils from St James CE Primary

School's newly formed Maypole Group Dancers performing their repertoire of dances for the crowd at their school fete.

For Pat Prosser it brought back memories of her son, Andrew Prosser, taking part in the same activity – only 47 years ago.

Mr Prosser was six when this photo was taken at the same school.
