Chil­dren of the 60s

Rossendale Free Press - - Nostalgia -

IN our weekly Nos­tal­gia fea­ture we pub­lish a set of pho­to­graphs shared by our reg­u­lar nos­tal­gia con­trib­u­tor, Pe­ter Fisher.

This week, we take a look back to find out what the chil­dren of Rossendale got up to in the 60s.

Our first pic­ture (top left) is a shot of a group of chil­dren dur­ing a visit to Bacup Fire Sta­tion.

In our next pic­ture (top right), Mrs Marie Mulc­ahy of Bacup holds her baby, Dar­ren, who was the first baby to be born in the new ma­ter­nity unit at Rossendale Gen­eral.

Next (right), we have a pho­to­graph of six young girls who took part in the Fes­ti­val of Queens in aid of the Na­tional Chil­dren’s Home at Longholme Methodist School.

Our bot­tom right pic­ture shows chil­dren from St Mary’s, Rawten­stall, work­ing to­gether to cre­ate a model for the Mis­sion­ary Ex­hi­bi­tion.

Our last pic­ture of the week (bot­tom left) shows Vivien Clegg, Hasling­den, a mem­ber of the Young Read­ers Club. b.

Although these pic­tures were taken in the 60s, ex­act dates of each pic­ture are un­known.

If you have any pic­tures you would like e us to fea­ture on our Nos­tal­gia page, send them to com­mu­ni­ties@ men­
