The first girl on the right in the front row (stood slightly back) is Pat Tompsett (my stepmother) who lived in Evelyn Avenue. She was asked to come along but didn't enjoy the day as everyone took the micky out of her hat.

Was there a Sheila Tompsett and did the family have a Newcastle connection?

Sheila Tompsett is still living in Newhaven as well as her sisters Mary and Pat. Marion and Irene are both living in Seaford. Mrs Tompsett originated from Newcastle. Pat sends her regards and will mention you to Sheila.
