Our nostalgic photo this week comes from Brian Arnold, of Sleaford, and features Sleaford Secondary Modern School’s own Young Farmer’s Club.

The school, now known as St George’s Academy, no longer has a YFC, but when did it cease?

Were you a member and are you among these young farmers pictured, as Mr Arnold can name almost all of them apart from one and a few first names.

They are: from left - (back) ? Mackinder, Brian Simpson, ? Corby, Fred Wright, ? Bosworth, ? Clayton, (middle) Mrs Trafford, Jim Houseman, ? Storres, ? Phillips, ? Storres, Ernie Black, Sylvia Hix, (front) Mr Richardson, Jean Lamb, Brian Arnold, ?, Michael Gill.
