Have your say

A street party is being held in this picture taken in Northham Drive, Ripley. It was taken in August 1981 and although it does not say what the party was for, we think it’s a safe bet it was to celebrate the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer.

Such parties were held up and down the country to mark the royal marraige as the country fell in love with the newlyweds.
