  • I have very fond memories of the Farmilo choir and I have this photograph somewhere in an album. I (Jean Deakin) am on the back row next to Joy Pearson. Happy days.

  • I recognise so many of the names here. Miss Farmilo was a wonderful head mistress. Loved her to bits. I think the Silvia??? on the left in the 2nd row is me, Sylvia Sommeling.
