EVERY year the people of Hampshire get together to spread Christmas cheer.

From carol concerts to charitable donations - it’s the season of goodwill to all men.

These images provide us with a glimpse back to what we were doing 50 years ago to celebrate Christmastide.

Festive feasts are undeniably linked to the time of year - as many of the images show people preparing to tuck into their Twelvetide turkey.
