AS we head into 2013, we take a look back into the archives once again.

Continuing on our journey throught the archives we come to 1974 and among the latest images we have found are some bargain hunters who picked up televisions sets for the princely sum of 1p; Whitton Playgroup’s fancy dress party, a massive 21lb pike caught in Ipswich and and haggis making at the Belstead Brook Hotel.

Are you in any of these pictures? Drop us a line.

As ever, if you have any memories you wish to share with Star readers, email us at starnews@archant.co.uk
