Horse Sunday in St Neots, 19th September 1953 - parade leaving the Common

Horse Sunday was an annual event (now seldom observed) at which all local riders would assemble on St Neots Common and then proceed to the Market Square where a Vicar or Minister would conduct a short service and bless the equines and riders.  This picture shows the second from the right is believed to be a Warmsley-Dresser girl and Chris Heofkens on the left riding ’Squirrel’ and putting something in his pocket.  (Photo by George Page)
