FLASHBACK Thursday is changing ever so slightly.

From today I will be picking the best photos and news items from a specific decade.

I was proud to be an 80s kid growing up in Basingstoke.

I have so many memories of the old town centre, being able to get from Popley into town for 20p, and the numerous much missed shops from that era.

If you have any memories to share, contributions are always welcome to the above email address.
