HERE’S a group who knew their double tops from their outer bulls.

This picture, the first of three provided to us by Pat Tooze, of Springwood Gardens, Belper, features what she believes is a darts team.

Pat’s dad, Arthur Newham, is on the snap. He is pictured near the coat hooks to the back left of the photograph.

She said: “I think this was a darts team at one of the pubs in Belper. There was a pub on Nottingham Road, but I can’t remember its name.

“I remember seeing the lady at the front, but I do not know her name.

“My dad played darts and I have a feeling it was for that pub.”

Do you recognise anyone in this photograph? Could you name anyone for Pat? Do you know the pub?
