NOSTALGIA: ‘Big jewellery and huge shoulder pads’
Paula Harber (nee Sunshine) sent us this photograph from the 1980s from a business called Sunshine Beauty Salon in Garland Street, Bury St Edmunds.
We are told it was owned by Melanie Sunshine (sitting left) with Paula, her sister (standing middle) assisting.
Paula is unsure why they were dressed up as she said they were always getting dressed up and having parties back then.
Other members in the photograph were Kate Palliser and her sister Fran’ (1st & 2nd standing left), Suzi Peachy (2nd from right) and Yvonne Wilson.
But Paula wants to know who is the lady standing far right?

The royal visit arrived at the 7th Armoured Division Memorial, in Thetford Forest, where she met 35 veterans and enjoyed an informal cup of tea with them.
The Duchess took the salute from the Royal Tank Regiment, the Guard of Honour, on the parade ground and attended a short service of remembrance before laying a wreath at the memorial.
After a minute’s silence, she inspected several vehicles used in battle and met old comrades , who told her stories of pride and dark humour.
