Outing to Wicksteed Park,
August 1949
In August 1949, a group of residents from the new Estate in Trumpington
enjoyed a day trip to Wicksteed Park near Kettering.

The next day, the
Cambridge Daily News had a photograph of the outing.

Brenda Bass (née Brenda Jones) and Val Burden (née Valerie Charge)
have provided a copy of the newspaper photograph.

Brenda Bass and Geoffrey Mott and Karen Guttery (née Karen Mott)
have also provided three photographs of individual groups and begun to
identify participants.

Can you help identify any of the participants? Please
contact us if you can
help.

Caption: 'Members and friends of the Trumpington Estate Tenants' Association about to leave
yesterday for an outing to Wicksteed Park, where a very enjoyable time was had by 350
children and 150 adults. Both coaches and tea were supplied free to the children. This was
largely made possible by the success of the Association's August Fete. The arrangements were
made by the Committee and the eleven coaches were supplied by Progressive.'
