EVERYONE loves a trip down memory lane.

Now a new Facebook group has been set up to allow people to share their favourite memories of growing up in Essex.

The Gazette and Echo newspapers launched the group today and will use pictures and content in print and online.

Whether it's school class photos, pictures with friends in a sports team, images of certain events or shots of particular buildings, pubs, nightclubs or shops, we'd love to hear from you.

The Facebook group is called We Grew Up in Essex
