The Way We Were

Travel back in time to the 1930s and July saw great excitement in the town of Hucknall – it was Carnival week!

The Carnival was opened on the Monday afternoon with the crowning of the Carnival Queen and the opening of the Trades Exhibition. There were teas, c...

Richard was the proprietor of a successful motor rewind business based in a neighbouring village. The business was established in 1989 and during this time he gave us a great service and was a most likeable and friendly person.

Whilst carrying out electrical maintenance in Nottinghamshire we often attend breakdowns of extractor fan motors and electric fan heater motors mainl...

Andrew went to visit the church in February to meet with church representatives and pro...
