The lady holding the little girl is Mabel Cheal, my grandmother, and the little girl was my Mum, Eileen Pescud. I am Anne Pescud but my married name is Harrison.
I have been living in Norfolk since 1988 with my husband David, whose first wife was Peggy Harrison who taught at Handcross School.

Peggy Harrison was my teacher for 3 years at Handcross. I have often wondered what happened to her after she left the school.
I bumped into Margaret Morgan in Burgess Hill recently, She looked very well.

Peggy and David divorced 3 years before I met him. Peggy gave up teaching after her divorce and worked as a housekeeper etc. for people in London. She is now 75 years old and lives in Northampton.
When I went to Handcross School Mr. Hawksworth was headmaster and Miss Morgan was my class head. Miss Stenning arrived after I had left to go to Cuckfield school, but I think David knew her.
I think you are probably the same age as my cousins, Anthony, Gerald and David Cheal. Anthony and his father Uncle Michael and Aunty Barbara still live in Handcross.
The Cheal boys have done very well for themselves, running a very successful family business in Burgess Hill. That's all for now.
