Local Heroes

Sixty seven years ago last September the second world war started. Whilst it is just history to most of us, to many of our oldest residents it was a terrifying reality. Everyone who lived through it has his or her own personal memories of those historic events. If you have a story, why not share it with us. Send it here.

Meanwhile here is Charlie’s War
