Young parishioners taking part in their First Communion are shown in this weeks top picture.
They were snapped by former Observer photographer Garth Dawson in 1977.
Garth said: “The picture was taken at Paddock Catholic School and shows their first communicants along with two local priests.”
Our next picture shows bowling veterans at Peel Park in 1974.
Garth said: “There was a presentation to the winner by Accrington MP Arthur Davidson and was watched by other players and officials.”
Our final photograph this week shows children taking part in a harvest service at Springhill New Church in September 1974.
Garth said the church was closed a year later
