I came across this website a few weeks ago -
And I sent them an email asking if they would put a link on their site to our Summervale Blog.Under the Community heading they have a history section and I felt that we could add some interesting photos and stories to that.
They have agreed in principle to us interacting and I sent this email today -
I'm not sure how this will work with your website. Perhaps you could put a section under Community Groups headed - Post War Memories. I could then write a piece introducing my blog and including the link so that anyone interested could see the blog. They could then contact me direct.
I suggest that you and your committee could look at the blog -
so that you can see all the photos and read the memories of those who lived in Ilminster after the war and still call it " home".
In the meantime they sent me 2 great photos -
The Bike Boys
Allan Dixon and Peter Westmacott on the right & possibly David Chambers?
?? Michael Jolly, David Westmacott?
No idea! Help.
Note – there is a CAR outside Mike Smith’s bungalow – A rare occurrence.
Mrs Newlyn’s Scouts? ( She is at the back on the left).
I am assuming they are scouts as I don’t recognise anyone except Clive Williams – the love of my young life -
Clive in the middle in white.
Who are the others? Apparently this photo came from the Bristol Evening News.
