MEMBERS of Amber Valley Conservative Association are pictured in 1985.

This picture was taken from our archives and shows Tories from September of that year.

It looks like the event was some sort of garden party – maybe it was a fundraiser for the party.

The General Election was two years later in 1987 with Margaret Thatcher’s Tories being returned to power with a comfortable majority. Neil Kinnock’s Labour added only 20 additional seats despite an initial good election campaign.

If you know anything about the picture or information on what the event was then got in touch. We would love to hear from you.
