Sarah says: I can't name everyone in the photos but I know someone else will be able to! My mum (Barbara Christopher, later Barbara Duff) was the vicar in the chimps' tea party (below). I remember the bible she is holding is actually a Dick Francis novel! In the second she is the executioner. The unfortunate lady waiting to have her head chopped off is Sandra Clayton’s mother - Mrs Bell.  The pig’s head in the middle of the feast is - a pig’s head!  It was ordered and delivered earlier in the day.
I think Winteringham WI used to do very well on the floats if I recall correctly.

WI Hospital Float

Photograph courtesy of Sandra Clayton, who tells us: “Winteringham W.I. always tried to get some humour into their entry, hence the sausages {intestines} coming out of the patient in the bed. Mavis Wingate is in the wheelchair and my mum is looking after her with the bedpan. The theme of the floats that year was television programmes.”
