Tuula latest appeal - can you help?

Detectives investigating the murder of Finnish national Tuula Hook are asking the public for more information on what are believed to be Tuula's previous associations with the Georgetown area, as well as what might have been referred to as an ˜Anglo Club' possibly frequented by the 20-year-old.
 
The club is believed to have been some kind of informal gathering place for foreign nationals in Georgetown and officers believe more details of it could help the investigation.
 
Since an initial press appeal on 18th January 2013 for information regarding the murder in December 1966 police have received more than 25 calls and are now seeking further information.
 
The officer leading the enquiry, Detective Inspector Lee Turner, said: "I am very pleased with the response to date and would like to thank those people who have come forward. But I would continue to urge others who think they might have information, however seemingly insignificant this might appear to be, to make contact.
 
"It is vital in a case such as this that we build as full a picture as possible of Tuula's life, contacts and activities in Jersey, not just in respect of the hours leading up to her death but also in the days, weeks and months beforehand.
 
"It is known that Tuula moved into premises on Beach Road on the 28th December 1966, but that she had only met the family with whom she moved in on the 26th December.  Her walking to Georgetown to catch a bus to visit friends at Pontac on the 30th December, and her association therefore with Georgetown that evening is in itself unremarkable.
 
"Of greater interest however are indications that prior to the 26th December she already had associations with the area of Georgetown and Havre des Pas. We believe she previously socialised in the area and was friendly with three unidentified girls who shared a flat in the Bagot area, one of whom is believed to have had a connection with Newcastle.
 
"We also believe she may have previously been planning to move into other premises in the Havre des Pas area, and we need to know more about this and who it was that she was associated with in the area. 
 
"We are also keen to learn more of what has been referred to as some form of informal gathering place for foreign nationals in the Georgetown area which may have been referred to as the "Anglo club or similar, although it is not believed that any such venue had a formal status as a club.
