Appeal for Royal photos

THE COUNCIL has asked Eastwood and Kimberley residents to dig out old photographs of Royal events in the run-up to the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

With Assession Day on Monday marking 60 years since Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation, Nottinghamshire County Council wants the images for an exhibition in the county later in at Rufford Craft Centre in the summer.

Sue Cullen, arts and sports service manager, said: “Whether its family parties or village festivals, if you have photographs we’d love to see them!”

Bring your photos to Beeston library on Monday March 5 between 2.30pm and 5.30pm.
