The sun is finally shining (or it was when we wrote this!) which must mean one sports days are on the horizon.

So this week we dipped into the Advertizer’s Bygones and uncovered these action shots from the then named Lakelands School – now Lakelands Academy – in Ellesmere during the sports day of 1982.

There was clearly a lot of effort going into the races and plenty of celebrations in the group shots.

If you have some old photographs you would like to share please bring them into the office of email them to

We will bring a selection to you in the next few weeks.
