Should we be smiling at the camera or is it time to get playing? These youngsters who enjoyed themselves each Wednesday and Friday morning at the Fairstead playgroup in Lynn seemed undecided when the Lynn News photographer called during February, 1986.

As we reported last week, the group had 69 children on the register – and there was a waiting list. There were three sections, each meeting twice a week at the local community centre.

Painting was always a popular activity with the children, said supervisor Pat Backhouse, and there were many toys to play with and games were arranged. Photo: MLNF 86780.
