Carl Giles smashing charity bottle at the Emperor Inn March 1984.

Progressing through the 80’s, this week we found these images.

This week on our journey we have found images of cartoonist Carl Giles smashing a charity bottle at The Emperor Inn in Ipswich, a Salon Culinaire presentation at the Corn Exchange, young gymnasts at Whitton Sports Centre, and young BMX riders with their trophies.

Along with these, we also found images of a medieval banquet at Halifax Primary School and Chantry Church celebrations.

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