A MAN from Ashwell wants to get in touch with his former school friends.
The photograph shows Maurice Skinner, 69, who used to attend Orwell's Church of England School, with his friends at a May-pole dance in Orwell.
The picture was taken in 1951 in the church grounds when the school was enjoying a May-pole dance.
Mr Skinner, however, said he cannot remember who took the photograph.
