We look back at the Free Press this week in 1999
Efforts to bring a new £300,000 community centre to Sutton Bridge were in full swing with the running total standing at around £5,500.
Children of WestmerePrimary School were rewarded after making colourful posters showing what theywould most like to see in a community centre.
And an annual darts match raised much-needed funds for the project. The evening, at the New Inn, was won by Shaun Bidwell, with Jackie Kilburn runner-up.
Fast start to married life
It was a case of congratulations to the bride and vroom at Fleet’s St Mary Magdalene church.
The wedding of Hocklesgate couple Roy Bearman and Lorna Allen raised more than a few eyebrows in the village - they had 19 chrome-polished motorbikes, five motorised trikes and a band of leather-clad riders in attendance.
Roy (36)arrived with an escort ofbikers on his Kawasaki, while Laura chose a more conventional Jaguar for her arrival.
