The Holme Valley was fully supping from its Last of The Summer Wine boom in 1990.

It was 17 years on from the first programme in 1973 and 20 years before the longest run comedy show would see its last episode in 2010.

Holmfirth folk were only too eager to join in the fun.

Young Darryll Wimpenny was faced with a choice to tempt any Compo at Holmfirth Festival’s tombola stall – not one but four Nora Battys.

 

They were (from left) Liz Colquhoon, Rachel Hall, Lindsay Wimpenny and Mark Lee.

A Nora and Compo lookalike competition – judged by crowds that gathered to watch on Nora’s steps at Holmfirth – was won by Rachel and Darryll.

It was all part of a week-long festival with proceeds going to local charities and the River Project to clean up the River Holme.

Chamber of Trade president Mrs Dorothy Gregg praised people taking part in the week’s events which included a charity pram push from the Farmers Arms at Burnlee into the middle of Holmfirth.
