Reader Hilda Townsend (nee Creasey) has sent in a couple of photos from her old school.

The photos date from 1927 and 1929 and Hilda is hoping other Journal readers may be able to help her put names to all the faces,

Hilda, who now lives in Whissendine, near Oakham, said: “I have many pictures of Sproxton CE School, which now form an album. These two pictures were given to me by Stanley Birch.

“We have the names of some of the children in the photographs but not all. I would like to hear from anyone who can help fill in the missing names.”

She added: “I attended Sproxton School from 1950 to 1955 and have many happy memories, which many of us have shared at reunions we have had in the past.”

After Sproxton Primary School, Hilda went on to attend secondary school in Melton Mowbray and then Grantham College.
