Does anyone have access to birth/adoption records for 1967 for the area of Hemsworth please for girls born around June.

No one will have any access to adoption records. They are very private documents tht have to be applied for by the adoptee themselves.

If you know the names you are looking for then you can search for free but if you are not a member you will not be able to open the actual BMD pages.

The Adopted name won't appear on the publicly available gro index, only the Birth name.

Look for entries which have S after the page number.

If you are related, add your name to the adoption contact register, and hope that the adoptee has done the same

Search all trees on here to see if her parent(s) and herself are listed under their birth names.

Here is another contact site
