Re: Suffolk Darts A Team at St Audry’s Melton, October 1981

The young chap standing in the front row, right hand holding his left arm, is Alfie Nunn.

I was the landlord of the Tuddenham Fountain at the time, where he played. He has since, sadly, passed away.

My wife and I are in the picture so I can tell you about it. Sadly three in the picture have passed away. They are Jane Harrold first left, Gordon Moyes at the back and Muriel King on his right. At the front Peter and Barbara Watts, Jo Luvolk with Cynthia Moyes behind and Renee, my wife, at the back and I am the tall one on the right. I am now in my 80s. It was The Rev Tony Marsh who started the West Suffolk Fuchsia Fellowship back in the 1970s in Beyton, near Bury St Edmunds.

Re: Elpico Six in January 1966

The “Elpico Six” were an R&B band based in Bury St Edmunds and toured the clubs and dance halls of East Anglia until their break-up in 1967.

The line up were (from left to right): singer Dave Leverage, lead guitar Fred Cutler, rhythm guitar Tim Elmer, bass guitar Adrian Redwood, drums Micky Pepper and Liz on keyboard and vocals.

Liz turned professional on leaving the band, touring Europe for a number of years. Their one and only recording, with Liz as singer, was given air time on Radio Caroline but unfortunately no wider fame nor fortune.

Fred Cutler,

Re: Halesworth Middle School Cross-Country runners Dec 1982

The person in the middle of the picture (Flashback, January 2) is Terry Smith of Sproughton.

He ran for Ipswich Harriers as did the chap on his left, as he is wearing an Ipswich Harriers vest.

I don’t know the other two people.

Nick Rust,
