Rossendale Free Press - - Time Trip -

THIS week’s Time Trip fea­ture takes a look back at what was hap­pen­ing in the Val­ley in the years 2002 and 2003.

We have pic­tures of Scouts be­ing awarded their neck ties, a giant pie, cricket club award win­ners and a hos­pice din­ner, all taken 15 or 16 years ago.

Our first pic­ture of the week shows a huge pie be­ing pre­sented to Paul Crone, who was walk­ing through the north west to raise money for the Air Am­bu­lance Ap­peal.

The pic­ture was taken in Whitaker Park, Rawten­stall, on Au­gust 11, 2003.

Our next pic­ture (right) shows the pre­sen­ta­tion of ‘neck­ers’ to the New Ven­ture Scout sec­tion at St Joseph’s Church Hall, Rams­bot­tom, on Oc­to­ber 1, 2003.

At the back, from left, are district com­mis­sioner Graham Lord, Lee Armstrong, Mark Whar­ton and Fiona Ribch­ester and county com­mis­sioner Ann Holt.

At the front, from left, are Alan Woods of Mar­shalls Quarry, Rams­bot­tom, and Scout Alex Morrison.

Be­low that (bot­tom right) is a shot of some of the many tro­phy win­ners at Bacup Cricket Club An­nual Awards on Satur­day Novem­ber 29, 2003.

Fi­nally (be­low) we have a shot of the hos­pice din­ner ar Bacup Leisure Hall.

From left are Chris­tine Jack­son, Dave Trick­ett Jimmy Heaton, Val Wil­liams, Max­ine Walsh, Lynne Ed­mon­son and Dave Ed­mon­son, hold­ing a signed pho­to­graph of Martin John­son, Eng­land Rugby Union cap­tain.

The pic­ture was taken in 2002.

In our weekly Timetrip fea­ture we pub­lish a set of pic­tures taken by Rossendale Free Press pho­tog­ra­phers which have ap­peared in the pa­per in years gone by.

If you have any pic­tures you would like us to fea­ture on this page, send them to com­mu­ni­ties@men­media .co.uk or sub­mit them via the Rossendale Free Press Face­book page.
