THESE Cubs from Combs were photographed cooking rice in December 1979, but can you remember why?

It is another of the nostalgic photos found in our archives that we are seeking more information on.

We also have a photo of Bob Russell, then Mayor of Colchester, now the town’s MP, at the launch of the Kids Aid Record at Colchester Town Hall in November 1986. Did you take part?

Were you one of the young roller hockey players in Bury photographed in November 1986?

Or did you help the Woodbridge Deben Players make scenery for their panto in November 1972?

Our final image shows steel strike pickets at Mistley in January 1980. Do you recognise anyone in the picture?
