Noel Dyson

 

Noel Dyson was an actress who lived for some years at Duddenhoe End.  She starred in Coronation Street and Father, Dear Father among many other roles.  You can read more about here on the Wikipedia entry here.  She would come and support school events and the above was obviously some sort of fancy dress probably around the mid-1970s.  If anyone can tell us anything more about this event please let us know.
