Docking Heritage group has a mystery photo and will be reflecting on the 100th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme during its ninth annual exhibition.

The event is being held at the Ripper Hall in Docking this bank holiday weekend, on Sunday and Monday.

Secretary Helena Aldis said: “There will be displays featuring the Docking boys who fought on the Somme, as it is the 100th anniversary of that First World War battle this year.

“We shall also be showing old films of village carnivals and fetes in the heritage room all day on both days.

“Alongside these will be a display of village photographs both from the archive and newly-acquired, a selection of oral histories, a display of school records and a family history helpdesk with various trees and records available to help you with your research.

“This year we have a mystery photograph which maybe a portrait of the Boyden family taken around 1910.

“It was found in a cupboard under the stairs in an old cottage in the village and is in great condition.

“Members of King’s Lynn metal detectors and an archaeologist will also be on hand with a display of local archaeological finds.

“This year we are hoping to compile a collection of local ghost stories and we would like people to come forward with their tales of the past.”

Docking Heritage Group’s exhibition at the Ripper Hall will be open from 11am- 4pm each day. Entry is £2 and there will be refreshments available.
