Happy days of 50 years ago

Let's Talk - - Postbag - Mrs PAMELA FOWLER Hop­ton, Nor­folk

Ref­er­ence the ‘Mem­ory Lane’ pic­ture (April is­sue) show­ing se­nior ci­ti­zens at a rally at the Flo­ral Hall, Gor­leston, in 1973, re-pro­duced here.

Th­ese ral­lies were held an­nu­ally. Folk were picked up at their re­spec­tive old peo­ple’s clubs free of charge and re­turned, by the cor­po­ra­tion’s blue buses.

Think­ing back nearly 50 years, the event was co- or­di­nated be­tween the Great Yar­mouth Bor­ough Coun­cil and the Cor­po­ra­tion Buses.

One of the main or­gan­is­ers of the ral­lies was Ju­lian Lacey, war­den of Shrub­lands Youth and Adult Cen­tre in Gor­leston and through him, the cen­tre’s drama group pro­vided the en­ter­tain­ment, plus cen­tre mem­bers.

I was one of the team. We helped serve the re­fresh­ments. A big raf­fle was also held on what were very happy oc­ca­sions.
