Christmas party in Hoy?

This picture belongs to my Mum Margaret Gray nee Stephen. Her father (and my Grandad) is Alexander P. Stephen.

She lived at Mill Bay West on Hoy. She's in second row, 7th from right, wearing glasses. My Mum looks to be around 6 or 7? which puts this photo around 1945/6.

Must be a Christmas party as Santa is on the stage!

Jimmy - sorry only just gone back onto this site and seen your message. My email address is brian@gray181.freeserve.co.uk .

Janet - Nice to hear from you. I remember your parents and last saw them at Grandads funeral in 2006? If I remember correctly you have a twin brother called Peter? Would be nice to hear from you, my email is included in this email. I'm also in contact with Doreen Martin via this website and with whom I've shared some old photos. I'm sure I have some photos at home with your Mum on, I went through some old photos with my Mum a few years ago and I'm sure there's some with 'Cathy Hay' written on the back. Anyway I'll check later today.

Actually I might be getting confused between your parents and Cliffy and Edna at My Grandads funeral?
