THIS week’s Time Trip

Accrington Observer - - TIME-TRIP -

fea­ture takes a look back at what was hap­pen­ing in Ac­cring­ton 15 to 16 years ago.

We have pic­tures of a new land­lord and land­lady, a 40th birth­day party, a good­bye meal for a friend trav­el­ling abroad and crafts made for The Christie, all taken in 2002 and 2003.

Our first pic­ture of the week (above) was taken in Rish­ton and shows, from left, Christies Crafters Kath Maguire, June Wat­son and Lor­raine Wal­lace, who fash­ioned hand­made goods to raise money for The Christie.

Our sec­ond pic­ture (above right) was taken at Franco’s Ris­torante Pizze­ria in Oswaldtwistle on Oc­to­ber 4, 2003. A good­bye party was held for Fe­lic­ity Fon­ward, who was go­ing to Aus­tralia for a year.

Be­low that (bot­tom right) is a shot of a 40th birth­day cel­e­bra­tion for Denise Beard at Green Ha­worth Golf Club, Oswaldtwistle, on Septem­ber 27, 2003.

Fi­nally (right) we have a pic­ture of the new land­lord and land­lady, Gary Pilk­ing­ton and Lor­raine Robin­son, hard at work be­hind the bar at the Roe Buck, Rish­ton.

In our weekly Timetrip fea­ture we pub­lish a set of pic­tures taken by Ob­server pho­tog­ra­phers which have ap­peared in the pa­per in days gone by. If you have any of your own pic­tures which you would like us to fea­ture on this page, please send them to com­mu­ni­ties@ men­media.co.uk or sub­mit them via the Ac­cring­ton Ob­server Face­book page.
