This week’s photograph shows members of Barrow Ladies’ Thursday Club in February 1974.

They were pictured with the Rev John Wright and his wife Ruby sorting through recipes which they planned to print and have published in book form.

The idea for the book, which was to include around 100 recipes from 28 members, came about at a Christmas party, as guests tucked into culinary delights prepared by their friends.

Are you one of the women pictured here? Perhaps you have an old picture that you would like to see on this page - either personal, from a business perspective or from a sporting triumph.

You can email your pictures to reporter Laura Smith at 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 a few details with your picture, along with contact details.
