Gallery: Photographic memories from 1975

THIS week we’re travelling back in time to 1975 for our weekly look through the Evening Star picture archives.

Lollipop patrols have been in the news lately with the fight to save them.

Back in April 1975 pupils were saying goodbye to lollipop man Mr Wilby as he retired from the crossing in Springfield Lane, Ipswich.

Also in April, Felixstowe Sea Cadets took part in a sponsored walk and there were rehearsals for a Boys’ Brigade play.

In July a new Girl Guides company started in Stoke Park, Ipswich, while in January, the winners of a cookery competition at Copleston School received their prizes and the Civic College football team was pictured in April.

As ever, if you have any memories you wish to share with Evening Star readers, drop us a line at the addresses below and we’ll feature your contributions at a later date.
