Welcome to the Advertizer’s new-look Bygones section.

As we mark the 170th anniversary of the Oswestry and Border Counties Advertizer in 2019, we want to take you back to yesteryear with a selection of images each week taken from our archives.

We’ve kicked things off with the Pontfadog School Sports Day in 1982.

As you can see, there are plenty of action shots – including a very tense egg-and-spoon race – plus plenty of crowd support images.

Do you recognise any of the faces? If you do email us at news@bordercountiesadvertizer.co.uk visit our office on Oswald Road, or give us a call on 01691 655321.
