Wendy Phillips contacted us after seeing her mum Anne Stevenson in the picture. In the top photograph, which Wendy handed in, Ann is back left with a frilly collar.

Wendy also gave us a number of programmes from the theatre group’s productions, which started in Alnmouth in 1948. And in those days, it was only threepence or sixpence per programme.
