These smiling faces are clearly happy to have won a huge trophy - but do you know what for?

Susan Mills of Winster sent in this photograph of pupils at Bakewell Methodist Junior School in the 1962/63 school year.

She said: “A friend of mine from school, Christine Bunting, died about eight years ago and when her family cleared out her flat they found all these photos of when we were at school.

“I don’t know the details of this group photo. All I know is that all the teachers are there and there’s lots of children from all different year groups. I also recognise Reverend Slater from the Methodist church.

“The school had a good reputation for music so the trophy might have been for a choir or a musical event.” Susan added that she thinks the picture was taken on the school’s old site on Matlock Street, behind the Methodist church.
