This picture was sent in by Maureen Howard of Hillmorton and shows a children’s Christmas party taking place in the 1960s. It was held at the Ambulance Station in Temple Street and shows Mrs Howard’s children Gail and Gary Colledge. Other names she can provide include Doug Parker, Wilf Brown and Jason (surname unknown).

The second picture was sent in by Sheila and Ron Harris and shows the former owner of the Avon Mill Pub on Newbold Road, Emily, Gladys and Fred Haynes, with Sheila and Bob Jenkins who used to live with them. It was taken in 1955.

Sheila and Bob now live near Caerphilly in Wales but dropped by the pub earlier this year and met with current owners Mac and Louise McKenzie, who have managed the pub for 19 years.
