Racing home for Rasen

editorial image

When we printed a photograph from the Rasen Mail of 1960 featuring the inter-schools sports winners of that year, one person recognised the people straight away – because he was one of them.

Terry Staves called in to see us with this picture, which shows him crossing the line to win the 440 yards race at the event in a record-breaking time of 59 seconds.

The photograph was taken by Tony Brumpton, of Coronation Street, and also shows, from left, Derek Rawlings, Malcolm Scott, perhaps the PE master of Horncastle with the stop watch, Mr Stamp, two ladies (possibly teachers from other schools) and Mr Holgate.
