NOSTALGIA: Pictures from Crowland, Donington and Gosberton Bank in 1995

Donington Youth Club was officially reopened after nine months of closure with a disco 25 years ago this week.

Teenagers danced as they showed support for the club which was to be open two days a week.

Leader Paul Slater said: “It was a really good turnout of more than 100 kids.”

Crowland Safety Pin Club got into the Easter spirit this week back in 1995.

The club, for pre-school children and mums, met at the Snowden Pavilion and the youngsters made special three-dimensional Easter chick cards. All of the children were given a small egg to eat.

Committee member Kathy Crouch said: “I think the children enjoyed making the cards – they certainly enjoyed eating the eggs!”

Youngsters at Crowland’s South View Primary School were learning about letters in some fun and unusual ways 25 years ago.

As well as their usual reading classes, the pupils played and made words games and created colourful dough models of letters.

Reception teacher Penny Smith said: “The aim of the week was to make the children aware that reading comes into everything and to develop their enjoyment of reading.”
