Thanks are due to Pat Gritton once again — who has found yet more photos to add to our collection.
Most of them were taken at St Columba's between 1962 / 63.The first picture is from a different era, though, and is of particular historical interest.
Are you able to name any of the priests ?

This photo escaped the furnace after Fr Harry Moreton* died

Pat thinks that the picture was intended for Fr Moreton's parents — and almost certainly he is featured somewhere in this group.

Any ideas as to the venue and an approximate date ?

*
Fr Moreton died 26th January 1965, aged 61 years, and was buried at The Priory
