Kate Fisher supplied this nostalgic photo to the Daventry Express.

She said: "The first is an original VE Day Street party in Liverpool and features my nan, Emma, and my mother, Patricia, who is now 79.

"My mum is pictured 75 years later in Crick."

Patricia, who was at the VE Day celebrations in Liverpool as a child.

Kate is a well-known name in the town having taught ballroom and Latin to local children and adults for many years - firstly under Kate Fisher Dance Academy and now Dance Champ.

She said: "I still live in Crick and have two grown up sons.

"We all love looking at photos and learning family history, it’s good to pass the stories down the generations."
