Slideshow: Memory Lane in Sutton

Time to take a trip down Memory Lane as the Chad turns back the clock over 30 years.

This week, we’re in the early 1980s, with crisp black and white images of the Idlewells shopping centre from 1981, Sutton Colliery’s junior first aid team taking part in a competition and a paper recycling campaign at Sutton Centre.

Olympic athlete John Whetton makes an appearance at the start of a marathon and the Huthwaite Players are captured rehearsing a scene from Lord Savile’s Crime, by Oscar Wilde. Meanwhile, we also have pictures of a Walk of Witness that took place in Huthwaite in 1981.

And there’s an icy blast from the past with an snow-bound image all the way from the winter of 1984.

Do you recognise anyone you know in the pictures? Have you appeared in them yourself?

Have these images triggered long-forgotten memories?

Do you have any old pictures that you would like to see in The Chad’s Memory Lane feature?
