Nostalgia: Nearly at the end of the Eighties

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

We’re almost at the end of the Eighties – today we are remembering the year 1988 and hope that these pictures spark some happy memories.

Among today’s pictures we have some energetic people taking part in a keep fit session in Whitton, rehearsals for a play at the Heath Road Hospital; a teddy bear’s picnic in Gainsborough and a weekend cookery school at Chantry High School.

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.

Do you remember these events from the Ipswich Star picture archives? Write with your memories to: Sharon Clark, Photographic Memories, Ipswich Star, 30 Lower Brook Street, Ipswich, IP4 1AN or e-mail her at
