Merry and bright

Rochdale Observer - - TIME-TRIP -

IN our weekly Time-Trip fea­ture, we take a look back at events hap­pen­ing in Rochdale in years gone by.

Each week we will show­case a se­lec­tion of pic­tures taken by Rochdale Ob­server pho­tog­ra­phers.

This month we re­mem­ber Rochdale’s fes­tive cel­e­bra­tions over the years.

Our first pic­ture of the week (above) is a shot from the 2005 Rochdale Town Cen­tre Christ­mas light switch on.

Pic­tured are Carra King, 11, and Re­becca Far­rand, nine, of the Uni­corns of Sky­light Cir­cus.

Next (top right) we have Karen Clegg and Chris Rees drop­ping toys for the Christ­mas toy ap­peal at Asda, Rochdale in 2005.

Our mid­dle right pic­ture is of Joe Hop­kins in­side his fes­tively dec­o­rated home in Rochdale back in 2014.

Next (bot­tom right) is a pic­ture of Beryl Gould of the Vil­lage Deli at Rochdale’s Christ­mas Mar­ket on The Butts in 2009.

Fi­nally, our last pic­ture of the week shows an­other pic­ture from the 2005 Rochdale Town Cen­tre Christ­mas light switch on.

Pic­tured are El­iz­a­beth Buckland and Emily Hoyle with spe­cial guest, Trevor Hodg­son from X Fac­tor.

If you have pic­tures that you would like us to fea­ture, send them to com­mu­ni­[email protected] me­dia.co.uk or sub­mit them via the Rochdale Ob­server Face­book page.
