Moderna Models Revealed

Our feature on "Mighty Moderna" (issue 3) attracted a great deal of interest.

Mrs Norma Uttley (nee Wadsworth) not only identified all the children taking part in the mannequin parade but provided a photo of the event taking place in the canteen.

The fashions were described as "utility style" and, in a scoop no doubt, it was revealed that a new material - wool-fibro - had been used.

Thanks to Mrs Norma Uttley we can now put a name to the budding Moderna models featured in our spring issue: left to right, Edward Marshall, Judith Marshall, Lynne Marshall, Valerie Culpan, Pat Crabtree, Paul Hargreaves, John Crabtree, Norma Wadsworth, Susan Peckover and Anne Greenwood.
