Today we are remembering the year 1998 and hope that these pictures spark some happy memories.

Among today’s photographs from the archives are pupils from St Matthew’s School celebrating Victorian Day, a sponsored bike ride in aid of Suffolk churches and a group of Felixstowe police officers preparing to climb Ben Nevis.

Perhaps it is you in the pictures or maybe you know someone?
