Between the Wars

In recognition of the work we have already undertaken, the Heritage Lottery Fund has awarded funding for a further year. This will enable us to carry on our programme of research and presentations, but a priority now is to sort the mass of photographs and documents we have collected into a usable archive for use by future historians. Our presentation on the village between the wars attracted a loyal audience who braved the poor weather and the alternative attraction the World Cup semi-final to learn more of village history. Shirley talked about the domestic scene; Sylvia about the stories emerging from her analysis of the parish magazines; Ian used Mike’s research to talk about transport during the period; and Leslie used video and recorded memories to tell us more about the influence of Stella Skinner – headteacher here from 1938 to 1962 – on folk dancing nationally.
