CELEBRATING students cheered as they received their exam results back in 1994.


These students from Chantry High School were among those that were toasting success that summer.

Meanwhile, our photographers snapped youngsters having fun at the Gainsborough Community Day and the new starters enjoying their first day of school at Trimley St Mary that year.

Our snappers were at Felixstowe Carnival in 1994, and the Buttermarket karaoke competition and walkers setting off from Holbrook in a charity trek.
