THIS picture was taken from our archives and shows a summer time event in the Ripley and Heanor area.

It is the Rhododendron Sunday event in June, 1986. We know little about the event and would love to find out more. It must have been a large one as we have a number of pictures which were taken at the gathering.

This one shows a group of youngsters have fun with puppets – perhaps there was a show? If you spot yourself in this shot or recognise anyone – or can fill us in on what the event was all about then please get in touch. We would love to hear from you.
