Nottinghamshire Past

Hello from nostalgia journal Nottinghamshire Past

Recommended Posts

Hi all 

 

What a great forum! Really pleased to have joined - thanks everyone for having me!

 

I'm sure you're all aware that it is almost 20 years ago that Bygones began life as a separate publication with the then Nottingham Evening Post and since it ceased its print run several months ago, many have mourned its passing. 

 

We have therefore set up a new nostalgia journal - Nottinghamshire Past - which will delve into the region's cultural, sporting and historic roots from the not-so-distant past.

 

We really want this to be full of living memories so please do like our Facebook Page and share yours with us.

The first edition will be on sale at most local newsagents this month, June 2018, priced at £2.

 

Looking forward to hearing everyone's memories :)

Me too. I used to really enjoy Bygones on line. I wasn't aware of it until its last year, which I paid to read. Really enjoyable, hope I can do the same with 'Nottinghamshire Past'. Good Luck.

Bygones was great initially, as it was full of pics and info such as Rock City, Nottm Vic, Nottingham Forest, Boots, Players, Raleigh, Plessey etc over the years. However, more recent editions I purchased were a rehash of the same pictures and a plethora of adverts.

I also noticed that Bygones became thinner..and a lot of ads.

Also ...some of the decsriptions were not in line with the photos.

Looking forward to reading this new paper.

Always something new to learn.

I'll be surprised If there's anything we haven't seen previously, but we'll wait and see.

There are lots of untapped stories and features.The 80's are fair pickings as we are in 2018.

As time rolls on ....and evolves..thus secrets and facts unfold.
