Bringing our social media series to our website

The Robin Hood roundabout in Newbury
The Robin Hood roundabout in Newbury

Continuing our series of Pictures from the Past, today we're bringing you all the photographs from week 6.

This week's pictures start with an image of the Robin Hood roundabout from many years ago. This brought back a lot of memories of death-defying journeys and treacherous driving tests for many of our readers.

Another favourite this week was of the day Mr Blobby visited the Kennet Centre.

Throughout 2020 we will be posting a picture from our files every day on our Instagram and Facebook accounts.

We were so pleased with the response that we thought we would do a regular gallery on our website too - to ensure even more readers are able to enjoy them.

We hope you enjoy them and don't forget to check back every week to see the next batch of memory-making images, or follow us on Facebook and Instagram to see one every day.
