Have your say

Paul Hopfensperger, St Edmundsbury borough councillor for the St Olaves ward of Bury St Edmunds, sent in this week’s photograph.

It was taken by Paul ‘Budgie’ Burgess in June 1984 and shows Mr Hopfensperger as a young man, pictured left outside what was his father’s fish and chip shop in Risbygate Street, with the Bury Free Press Carnival Queen and Princesses passing by.

The shop is now Mr Hopfensperger’s Body and Mind Studio, with his family home located above.

He is keen to know the identities of the women in the picture.

Do you know who they are?

Perhaps you have an old picture that you would like to see appear on this page.

If so, we would like to see them - 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 contact details.
