The Holcombe Buskers pictured in 1975

This was the scene in September, 1975, when young members of the Holcombe Buskers children’s concert party arrived at Lynn Town Hall clutching handfuls of £5 notes.

It was money they had collected for the Mayor’s Distress Fund. Four-year-old Susan Odendeal presented the money, which amounted to nearly £40, to the Mayor, Mr F W Juniper, watched by her young friends and by Mrs Betty Raby (second right) who ran the group. It was a busy day for the Mayor who then greeted a party of German students staying in the Lynn area to study the British way of life.
