When this picture was taken almost half a century ago, Sunday School was part of most children’s lives.

In the Market Rasen Mail of July 2, 1966, the picture was used to report on the Sunday School anniversary of Market Rasen Methodist Church.

And it seems the event was spread over more than one day.

The report tells us the children had decorated the church with flowers, helped by Mrs Richard and Mrs C Hall.

As well as activities throughout the Sunday, there were more events on the Monday.

NB: The print version of this picture in this week’s Market Rasen Mail (July 1, 2015) shows more people at the event.
