Dave wrote: "Here's another picture I dug up but don't know a lot about but it. I think that it must be the Lydney Girls school that disappeared when the Lydney area schools went 'comprehensive'. I don't know what the school was called ,but it might have been Lydney County Girls School. The picture must be from around 1960".

I am in the percussion section of the orchestra, third from the left, not sure about the first girl but could be Jane Brown, then Christine Chuter, myself - Irene Johnston, and then Jane Davies.
