Gallery: Photographic memories from 1981

WELCOME to the latest instalment of our chronological look through the Evening Star picture archives.

Today we are remembering the year 1981 and hope that these pictures spark some happy memories.

We have the Suffolk Schools football team pictured in January, a donkey service on Palm Sunday in April at Bucklesham Church, the Masque Players’ production of The Curious Savage, Boy Scouts cleaning police vehicles at Martlesham in April, Felixstowe Sea Scouts’ presentation of the Adventure Training Cup, also in April and finally Ipswich High School netball teams line up for the camera.

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.
