The '84 Group at Rydal
..or When We Were Very Young!

For many years, there were women's groups at St Faith's.
  In the beginning were the Horsfall Ladies. With the passage of time, they were reborn as the '84 Group.
Joyce Green kept a scrapbook of photos taken on the latter's annual expeditions to Rydal Hall in the Lake District,
and the pictures above and below show the ladies posing, showing a leg or two, eating, drinking, chatting
and enjoying assorted outdoor activities in the years from 1985 to 1989. Those were the days....

Irene Taylor, Joan Tudhope, Angie Price and Audrey Dawson out and about


No, they didn't bring their menfolk along... also in 1984, a handful of youthful men
are seen on a Men's Group expedition, nowhere near Rydal Hall!
