Flashback: Carnival time in Felixstowe

THE ever-popular carnival has wound its way through the streets of Felixstowe for generations - but do you remember the parade of 1978?

This photo, taken in the September of that year, has been dug out of our archives, are you one of those on the float?

In our gallery, above right, we also have a photo of the Benacre pedigree sheep sale in August 1968 and Two Plus Two pop group at Denham in November 1975.

A little girl was having lots of fun at Chevington fete in September 1991, throwing wet sponges at a man in the stocks. Do you remember this?

Rain stopped play at the Framlingham Tennis Tournament in August 1968. Do you recognise the women in our photo, hiding under an umbrella?
