The Silver Jubilee celebration community gala at The Stray, Lightcliffe, in 1977. I remember it well from my community policing days at this event.

Here are the entrants for the fancy dress competition. Perhaps after all these years some of the children taking part still live in the area and can remember that special day.

A small steering and organising committee made up of local people, with the late Norman Lister as its chairman, put this event together.

This has been one of, if not the largest and best organised, event put together in the Hipperholme and Lightcliffe community for many years.
