More Diamond Jubilee in Old Buckenham

Looking at the past
Having celebrations like this Diamond Jubilee provides a chance to get out material to show the history of Old Buckenham over the years. In the village hall, people have been pouring over old photos and press cuttings looking at what happened at similar events in the past, particularly those some sixty years ago.
Information has been gathered on the names of all those lined up in old school class photos and discussions taken place on other people and buildings from the past.
Trying to recognise people now living in the village from photos taken of them around sixty years ago has proved to be harder than people thought.
Overall lots of useful information has been gathered which will no doubt intrigue others in years to come.
