It was a hello-goodbye day for children at a Preston junior school. Youngsters from the Harris School are preparing to say a fond farewell to the Garstang Road buildings. The children and their parents got a chance to look round their new school - two miles up the road at Ingol Lightfoot Primary School. The school was originally built to house children in the surrounding area but when it was discovered there were not enough pupils living nearby it was agreed to transfer the Harris School to the Lightfoot site

The boys rounders team, competing in the inter-schools competition, won their section. And not to be outdone, the girls proved victorious in their section of the inter-schools skittle ball rally

Three villages had a field day as the sun smiled on their annual jamboree. The crowds soaked up the carnival atmosphere created by the communities of Newton, Clifton and Salwick. Newton Youth Club, above, went punk for the day as they joined the colourful procession
Town crier Mike Andrews never thought he was in with a shout. With just three years experience under his belt, he faced competition from the cream of the country's public announcers. But Mike, from Dorset, bellowed his way to first prize in the Fylde town crier contest staged at Lytham's Lowther Gardens. Mike is pictured above with some of the other entrants
Television's holiday camp comics said a big Hi-de-hi to Blackpool at the start of their summer season The cast of the popular BBC series, headed by Paul Shane, who plays Ted Bovis, and Su Pollard, who plays scatty chalet-maid Peggy, were in the resort for a face-the-press preview of their theatre run at the Opera House. Also among the stars appearing will be Ruth Madoc and Michael Knowles

Teachers recalled the Swinging Sixties, and looked the part, when Broughton High School held its "Civvies Day" to raise money for charity. Civvies Day is an annual event when teachers opt for outlandish fancy dress and pupils pay 10p to wear clothes of their own choice. The charity this year was the Manchester Royal Children's Hospital bone marrow appeal
Parents, teachers and pupils turned out in force to recognise their school's stars.

A recent Government report stated that too many teenagers leave school without being able to write intelligible messages. The Evening Post put this group of fourth formers at Walton-le-Dale High School, near Preston, to the test - they had to write a letter to Miss Marilyn Smith, training officer in the personnel department at Preston Council. Pictured are some of the participants: Julie Caldwell, Louise Plumbley, Michael Potter, Julian Knowles, Jill Rigby, Timothy Worsley, Paul Marshall, Eleanor Thorpe and Ian Roberts
Old-time music hall had a distinctly young flavour at a village school. Youngsters from Adlington County Primary School, near Chorley, turned the clock back with an end of term concert for parents. There was also music for more modern tastes when the children sang songs from shows, including Grease and Oliver
Athletes from a local school will be hoping it's a case of fifth time lucky when they take part in the English Schools Track and Field Cup competition at Derby. On the four occasions which girls from Queen Mary's School, Lytham, have entered the event, they have made a habit of finishing second. Now the youngsters, pictured above, whose ages range from 12 to 15, intend to run off with that elusive first place
Happiness is a railway line running through the front garden for the Reverent Bob Jackson, vicar of St Oswald's Church. He has no problem with locomotives rumbling along and keeping him awake at night. That is because he directs all the timetables, as well as being station master, signalman, and footplate driver. The train buff decided to build a miniature six-inch gauge track around the garden of his vicarage home at Preesall, near Fleetwood
