Welcome again to our Time-trip column.
Each week we will publish a set of pictures taken by our photographers which appeared in the paper in the 2000s.
The pictures appear first on our website and are then reprinted in the paper.
This week our pictures show Accrington Lions members Harold Hardman and Peter Hopwood trawling through a mountain of toys for the Blind Institute, and Michelle Flood’s 21st birthday party at Si restaurant, Accrington.
They also show The Hargreaves Arms’ sponsored rickshaw push and Accrington Road Runners president Peter Blackledge (left) presenting the overall male champion trophy to Brent Hogan at the awards evening held in the Dog and Otter, Great Harwood.
The photographs were all taken in the early 2000s.
If you have any pictures you would like us to feature in the column, please send them into us at email@example.com or via the Accrington Observer Facebook page.
