THIS is a real treat for Hedon Blog readers! These nostalgic scenes of the town and some of its characters will just delight!
The footage, says John Harvey, shows the Mayor’s Parade through the Market Place, the old tin sheds of the primary school and some school sports days, a school fête and a concert in the newly built assembly hall.
Depicting Hedon (possibly the period from 1965 to 1968), the film has been transferred from the original 8mm to digital format by John and then posted as a Facebook video.
There have been over 2,000 viewings on Facebook combining those from John’s own posting and the Hedon Blog’s Facebook page. Now via the Blog, the footage will reach an even wider audience. Thank you very much, John, for sharing!
We would love readers to leave comments and help us identify any of the characters from the film.
