Pop­u­lar sell-out panto is in the pic­ture

Accrington Observer - - LOOKING BACK -

THE pan­tomime ‘Babes in the Wood’ was per­formed to a sell-out crowd at Ash Street Par­ish School in Great Har­wood.

More than 200 peo­ple watched the show in the 1970s, which was jointly pre­sented by the ACME Youth Club and ju­nior mem­bers of St Bartholomew’s church, pic­tured above.

The per­form­ers in­cluded Rosalyn Marsh as Robin Hood, Ju­dith Al­dred as Maid Mar­ion, Ann Chip­pen­dale, An­drew Hope and Mark Rogers.

Darts, domi­noes and ta­ble ten­nis com­pe­ti­tions were played at Green Ha­worth Golf Club, cen­tre, and were won by Mar­ion Ec­cles, Jim Booth and Chris Best re­spec­tively.

The Par­ent Teach­ers As­so­ci­a­tion of St Charles’ Pri­mary School in Rish­ton came up with a pop­u­lar way of rais­ing school funds, right.

A ‘Keep Fit to Mu­sic’ class was held in the school hall with ex­er­cises done to pop and more se­ri­ous records.

Our fi­nal pho­to­graph this week, far right, shows sis­ters Ta­nia and Karen Bleas­dale tak­ing a ride on Judy the pony at an At­las Street Day Nurs­ery gar­den party in Clay­ton-leMoors.
