Scope and content

June and Graham have kept a scrapbook of various events in their life and these pages offer a few of them. It begins with their Golden Wedding Anniversary card of September 4th 2004 which was a lovely event celebrated with their family and friends. A newspaper cutting of August 28th 1951 notes that Officer Cadet G T Taylor has received his 'Wings' at No3 RAF Flying Training School at Feltwell in Norfolk and that before joining the RAF Graham was a bank clerk at Barclays Bank. A newspaper cutting from January 24th 1996 tells us that June and Graham's granddaughter Gerrie Smee who is involved in an advanced level media studies course, was working with Spires films to make a film called "Life's a Lot of Things but it Ain't a Lottery" and the photograph with the article shows part of the filming taking place in The Roman in Bridge Street. A February 1997 newspaper cutting notes that Graham Taylor and Terry Rouse have both been bellringers for 50 years and are still ringing, as is Ted Dixey who has clocked up 52 years. Both Terry and Graham were taught to ring by Terry's father Reg Rouse. October 24th 1997 newspaper cutting is all about the Pumpkin Club, the grand weigh-in and auction of boxes of groceries after the weigh-in. June and Graham's grandchildren Carly, Aaron and Nathan Smee won first prize for their pumpkin in the Junior section. There is a photograph of the 1952 Bampton cricket team which included R Hurst, B Barnett, F Fox, F Rouse, E Timms, D Cannons, Phil Horne, Graham Taylor, (treasurer) R Stroud, (captain) Air Commodore Ellerton, (president) F Cannons, (chairman) and J Barton (vice captain.) Michael Trubshaw, one of the Concorde test pilots lived in Bampton and played for the club. The accompanying newspaper cutting gives a really good history of the cricket club and mentions past players such as John Rose, Jim Slatter, the Green brothers, Dick Jodrell, Jim Pryor, Walter Smith, Harry Smith, Walter Lay, J P Oates and Mr Ravenor. A newspaper cutting of May 22nd 1964 shows Esther Green with partner Susan Taylor, June & Graham's daughter winner the flower garland competition with Deborah Hiram and Gale Wheeler taking second place.
