Pic­tures show prizes and pets

Rossendale Free Press - - Memory Lane -

IN this week’s Mem­ory Lane fea­ture we are tak­ing a look back at the places, peo­ple and pets in the Valley in years gone by

Our reg­u­lar nostal­gia con­trib­u­tor Peter Fisher has shared with us a se­lec­tion of pic­tures taken down the decades, show­ing a Scot­tish event, a decades-old moggy, a new rose queen, a good-as-new sale and an RNLI pre­sen­ta­tion.

Our first pic­ture of the week (top left), shows the new rose queen at Bax­en­den Methodist Church, Ju­lian Wynne, with her ret­inue.

Next (top right), we have a pic­ture of Tiger, the 23-year-old cat from Wa­ter, be­lieved to be one of the Valley’s old­est at the time.

Be­low that (right) is a shot of a good-as-new sale at Bax­en­den Methodist Church.

Next (bot­tom right), there is a pic­ture show­ing the pre­sen­ta­tion of a sil­ver badge to Mrs M P Ash­worth of Ashville in recog­ni­tion of 21 years of ser­vice as trea­surer of the lo­cal branch of the Royal Na­tional Lifeboat In­sti­tute (RNLI).

Fi­nally (be­low), we have a shot of a Girls’ Brigade Scot­tish Evening at Hasling­den United Re­formed Church.

Do you re­mem­ber what years th­ese pic­tures were taken or have sto­ries and shots of your own to share? Please get in touch.

Many thanks to all our reg­u­lar con­trib­u­tors.
