The A.C.H.S./F.G.S. Orchestra
The A.C.H.S./F.G.S. Orchestra in July 1959 practicing in the F.G.S. Assembly Hall.
On the far left (foreground) is Gillian J. Feltham (a.k.a. Judy),
and next to her is Richard G. Springate who she married in 1963. Behind Richard is
F.G.S. teacher Bill Rayner. Jenifer Springate (leader) is in the foreground (left)
wearing a floral dress and the conductor is Mrs. Helen Johnstone. To the right of
the conductor the boy in a white shirt playing violin is Paul Treble and to his
immediate left (in dark jacket) is Bob Adams. Note the horrible tubular and brown canvas chairs.
Mrs. Helen Johnstone ran a ‘Tuesday Orchestra’ with pupils from
both F.G.S. and A.C.H.S. performing together in the F.G.S. assembly hall.
However the musicians pictured here suggests this may be another event.
On the extreme left of the photograph below is
Clive Strutt and the second girl
from the left is Susan Bickley. At front centre is Bob Adams and Caroline Ward.
The three principal figures (below) on the right facing the camera
are Geraldine (Jenny) Feltham, Bob Adams and behind him is Caroline Ward.
Geraldine married F.G.S. pupil Peter Noll but she unfortunately died very young.
Peter later married Richard Springate’s
sister Jenifer who had attended A.C.H.S..
