Nostalgia: Trip back to 1984

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

We are remembering the year 1984 and hope that these pictures spark some happy, cheerful memories.

Among the latest pictures, published in the gallery above right, are Felixstowe Rugby Team, Orwell High School Felixstowe Techmart Awards, Amberfield School Athletic Team and Co-op darts marathon which was held at Ipswich Airport.

Another shows teams practicing for the Ipswich Raft Race, in June 1984, while John Wark was photographed at the Suffolk College Knit In held in March 1984. Another shows Castle Hill Infants School taking part in a Greek Olympics event in June 1984.
