All of the photographs show the people of Southrepps in the early part of the 20th century.

The photos and other will be on display at an upcoming ‘Memories Day’ at the village hall on Saturday, February 24 from 10.30am to 3.30pm, to mark the 40th anniversary of the Southrepps Society.

Colin Needham, from the society, said: “The event is a one day exhibition of our collection and a chance for current and former village residents to participate once again in a Memories Day adding yet more stories and pictures to the archive.” Entry is free and there will be refreshments and homemade cakes.

The society achieves has regular meetings, lectures, walks and social events. Members have also undertaken an archaeological study of the village based on field walking.
