Flashback: Daddy’s girl remembers village hall opening

LEAFING through her own photo archive, reader Sonia Roberts found this image from the 1950s.

Ms Roberts, of Halstead, sent it to Flashback and said: “This is at the opening of the new village hall in White Notley in the early 1950s. I am the little curly headed girl sitting on my father’s lap about half way up on the far right hand side.’’

Do you remember any more about this?

Meanwhile, in our archives we found the photos in the gallery, above right.

One shows a school choirs festival held in St Edmundsbury Cathedral in July 1964. Do you recognise anyone?
