WE return to Aunsby again this week, courtesy of villager Dave Lovell.

Mr Lovell has provided us with these photos of children who attended the village school - some more than 100 years ago.

The first photograph was taken in 1909 whilst the second is from 1921.

As you can see, the number of pupils had decreased dramatically and the school closed the following year (1922).

The majority of the pupils pictured were left with no choice but to attend the school in nearby Swarby instead.
