Help Wanted

the embroidery
This circular piece of embroidery has been given to Rushden Museum. Nothing is known of its origins.

Around the edge and in a pattern between the embroidery there are school name tapes from the 1960s. They are all boys' names.

If you can help to identify the reason for it being made or the person who assembled the name tapes and stitched them in place, we'd be pleased to hear from you.

Do you recognise the names? 
Was it a youth group? 
Were they sportsmen?
Were they a school class?
