You'll find collections of photos taken of groups of children at school, sometimes with their teachers.  You'll also discover that groups of people from youth clubs, scouts, football teams and work places have found their way here.


A special selection of fifty photogaphs taken in those green spaces which can be found throughout our district have a page of their own, as do photos taken of many of the shops and stores which once lined Hatfield Road.


To celebrate the donations of pictures to this site by residents and former residents we are building a page of their submitted photos.


This page is a collection of pictures some might call miscellaneous.  There is no particular theme but all deserve a place somewhere, and that somewhere is this page.


If you would like to add a photo which is special to you, scan it at the highest definition you can – 300 dpi would be great – and email it as a .jpg (or .jpeg) file.  One click on the Email page will open up your email.  Tell us something about the scene, the event, the people and if necessary your connection with it.
