AS WELL as writing and compiling Flashback Thursday each week, I am also responsible for the  Basingstoke Memories page on Facebook.

The page was set up by Jason Southwell in 2013 and has grown over the years.

We are often sent photos and memories from Basingstoke residents, so I thought I'd print a selection this week. You can view more at

We welcome your contributions for Flashback Thursday.  You can email your memories to or via The Gazette, Pelton Road Basingstoke RG21 6XD.
