The following two Sunday School outing photographs have been kindly sent in by Ray Wilson of Melrose, Red Roses.  Ray comments:
'There was a thriving Sunday School when the Rev'd Robert Cole was there, but it tailed off after he left.  I can't remember much about the Church Sunday School as I was so young, but I was around my teens when I was in the Mountain Chapel, persuaded to attend by Mr Shanklin Sr.  I played the organ there for a number of years, first in the Sunday School, then for the chapel services, this was before Mrs Callnon.'

Lanteague Chapel Outing - 1962, Saundersfoot
Ray comments - the Saundersfoot photo of 1962 is difficult.  The four children right at the back are Robert James, Bellevue ?, Roland James holding Yvonne James, Bellevue, and Peter Brazell, Brynhyfryd.  The group right in front of them is Joan Shanklin (blue dress and lollipop); Ray Wilson, Mrs Tilly Wilson, Moors, with Eleri and Malvena Jones in front.  Right at the left is Mrs Cole, Minister's wife, with I think Mrs Callnon and her son next to her.  Next to Mrs Callnon, with the hat is Mrs Jones, Castle Ely Mill. 
Standing in front of everyone, in the middle is David Shanklin, Upper Castle Ely. Standing at the right is Mr Shanklin Sr, with Mrs Maud James, Bellevue next to him.  I think the couple next to Maud could be from The Folly, but I'm not sure. I don't remember anyone else.
