The Nelson Photo News



Off to Britain

And while the children were performing, backstage we found three teachers eager to try out the musical instruments. Above: Sue ("Fred"?) Watson about ready to burst if she doesn't get an oompah in and, right, Jenny Cherry has the right technique for the side drum, but Wendy Ratcliffe is a trifle hung under.


One who knew exactly what she was doing was Gillianne Barnes who gave a guitar solo.


These three happy youngsters are by now well settled in Britain where they plan to undertake a year's working holiday. They are Peter Watson (left) and husband and wife, Erin and Ken Watson (Peter is not related to Ken). Ken has been a senior clerk with the Nelson Post Office for 6½ years and Erin used to handle telephoned telegrams, and was with the department for 5½ years. Peter was a chainman with the Ministry of Works.
