Pictures from the past

Have your say

This week’s photograph shows a group of Bury St Edmunds dinner ladies in 1977.

It was brought in by one of the County Upper School dinner ladies in the picture.

The woman, who did not want to be named, would like to be reminded of the name of the dinner lady who took the shot - the only one missing from the picture.

She recalls Margerie Ronaldson as the school’s cook at the time and Nancy Applegate as headteacher.

If you have any information about it, you can write to reporter Laura Smith, or comment on the picture when it appears on our website - use the community tab at to visit our nostalgia section.

We would like to see your old pictures - either personal, from a business perspective or from a sporting triumph.

You can email them to or send them to Laura at the Bury Free Press. You can also bring them in to our reception in King’s Road.

Please include some details and contact information with your picture.
