This group is in association with the Lowestoft Journal and the Beccles and Bungay Journal, and is a place where you can share old photographs and memories of days gone by.

And as well as photos of Lowestoft and Beccles we would also love to see snaps from Southwold, Bungay, Halesworth and all the villages in between.

To find the page simply visit Facebook and search 'Lowestoft & Beccles Remembers'.

When posting your photos please include as much information as you can about when and where they were taken, and if you don't know you can ask fellow members to help you out.
