Take aim and fire

It looks like youngsters are 
having fun in this bygone picture as they have a go at some archery.

This picture is one from our archives and was taken in the 1960s, but we don’t know where in the Ripley and Heanor area.

Perhaps an eagle-eyed reader will recognise the event or the buildings behind the people pictured? Judging by the amount of people behind our main group, there looks to have been lots of things taking place that day - but what was the event?

If you recognise anyone or can tell us more about what was happening , please get in touch as we’d love to hear your recollections of that day.
