VE Day celebrations Greenhayes Avenue Banstead

Mulling through some old family photos I came across this one of V.E. Day Celebrations in Greenhayes Avenue, Banstead.

I'm the one - then Marian Dean - with the Ribbon in my hair, front row. 4th. child from the right. My father, Jack Dean, is at 11 o'clock in the back row, with the bushes behind!

Who knows anyone who was there on that eventful day? How many survive??

Hopefully, this old photograph might be of interest to Banstead History Research Group..

I think that the lady at the very back in front of the bonfire and to the left (as we see it) of the lady standing on something was my mother, Kitty Davis. Regretably, I'm unable to name any other people as I was only a twinkle in my mother's eye in 1945!

Is it possible to see this photo at a higher resolution?
I think that my father Frederick Eadie is in the centre of the back row.

NOTE FROM LNW: Andrew, I will go back on my archives and see what I can find.
UPDATE: I have sent Andrew a copy of the original which might help. LNW 25 Jun 2016

I lived in Greenhayes Avenue from 1936 to 1968 but sadly I cannot recall any of those in the picture.
The house on the left is No.2 and was occupied by the Nurse family.
I would have been at school in Sutton when the photograph was taken.
